Public Transit Is Still Moving, But 'Stay Home' If You Can
Our professional and personal lives have been dramatically upended by the spread of COVID-19, but regional public transit in greater Los Angeles is still moving — though it's noticeably less crowded right now (and service is reduced in some places).
As of Wednesday, the L.A. County Metropolitan Transportation Authority is running regular weekday service and agency officials say there are currently no plans to shut down.
But the agency "may adjust service on certain lines based... on street realities," spokeswoman Anna Chen wrote in a post on Metro's blog The Source.
The prevailing messaging from Metro: "If you can stay home, please do so."
For more on how the agency is responding — along with transit services managed by the city of L.A. and other local goverments — read my full story:
