Bus Riders Beware: Metro Relocating Union Station Stops During Renovations

By City News Service

Union Station’s bus and shuttle hub will be closed for three months, starting next Monday, to undergo renovation work, which means the temporary relocation of stops for the LAX FlyAway, buses and other shuttles.

The Patsaouras Transit Plaza, which is showing wear from being used by 1,000 buses a week, is scheduled to be rebuilt from July 11 until Oct. 10, said Steve Jeffe, Metro’s deputy executive officer of general services.

The stops that normally use the transit plaza will be moved to several areas on the periphery of Union Station, at the following locations:
—west entrance of Union Station, which will have stops for BoltBus, Megabus and LAX FlyAway;
—Alameda Avenue west of Union Station, which serve as the stop for Metro Lines 40 and 442, AVTA Line 785 and OCTA Line 701;
—Cesar Chavez Avenue at Alameda Street and Vignes Street, which will serve as the stops for Metro Lines 33 owl, 40, 68, 70, 71, 78-79-378, 442, 704, 728, 733, 745 and 770, and Commuter Express Lines 431 and 534;
—Southbound Vignes Street and Cesar Chavez Avenue, which will be the stop for Dash D, Dash Lincoln Heights/Chinatown, Santa Clarita Transit Line 794;
—El Monte Busway east of Alameda Street, which includes stops for Foothill Transit Line 699 and Commerce Casino/Citadel bus; and
—Union Station interior roadway, near the rental car area, will be the stop for the USC Shuttles, Bunker Hill Shuttle, Mount St. Mary’s University Shuttle and all other shuttles.
