Expo Line trains are slated to arrive every 12 minutes during the day and every 20 minutes at night throughout the weekend. Bus shuttles will match Expo Line service levels as best as possible. However, trips are expected to take about 20 minutes longer than usual, so please allow extra time and plan accordingly.

On Friday, Feb. 10, the last complete eastbound trips depart Santa Monica at approximately: 7:42 p.m., 7:56, 8:08, 8:21 and 8:36. The last complete westbound trips depart 7th/Metro at approximately: 7:55 p.m., 8:01, 8:07, 8:13 and 8:19. All times are subject to work related delays.

Finally, Metro is thanking customers for their patience and understanding as they get this weekend’s work completed. These repairs and upgrades will result in safer and more reliable Expo Line service.
