Expect delays between 6 a.m. and noon on Saturday:
On Saturday morning, April 28, transit patrons utilizing Union Station between 6 a.m. and noon are advised that they may experience service delays of 15 minutes or longer on inbound and outbound rail and bus services due to a scheduled joint security training exercise.
Union Station transit operators, including the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), Metrolink and Amtrak, will join the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Los Angeles Police Department, Metro Security, Amtrak Police and the U.S. Department of Transportation in a Homeland Security exercise intended to rehearse a coordinated, multi-agency response to a possible Union Station security threat. As part of the exercise, law enforcement and security personnel will set up security checkpoints around Union Station as well as inspect inbound passenger trains and buses.
