Changes at Metro Beget the Silver Line, New Valley Service & More
Every six months, Metro makes changes--what they call "service enhancements"--to their schedule and routes. Sometimes, schedule changes are hardly noticeable, sometimes whole lines are cut or added. Beginning Sunday, December 13th, the latest "enhancements" will hit the streets.
Of note is the new 902 Line in the Valley, which will run between Pacoima and the North Hollywood Station via Burbank and Van Nuys boulevards with limited stops.
Also debuting is the not-talked-about-much Silver Line. It has an interesting Wikipedia page (for what that's worth) and Metro briefly describes it on their blog:
The most significant change is the addition of new Metro Silver Line service between El Monte and the Artesia Transit Center via the El Monte Busway and Harbor Freeway Transitway, with stops in downtown Los Angeles. The new Silver Line means that a quintet of other lines using the transitway and busway will be truncated — the 444, 446/447, 484 and 490. (We’ll have more soon about the Silver Line on The Source).
It also will will go through streets in downtown, which could be trouble for traffic.
Other changes (see the full list here) include discontinuing the 153 in Woodland Hills and a re-route change on the 33/333.
