Here’s some Metro Orange Line news updates from Councilman Paul Krekorian’s office.
Metro is converting its entire fleet of buses to zero emission buses by 2030! The first phase will launch on the Orange Line with electric buses. In order to accommodate the zero emission fleet, Metro will install bus charging stations at the Orange Line North Hollywood Station.
Starting Monday, July 22, the Orange Line North Hollywood west parking lot will be temporarily closed through October 31, 2019 due to construction activity for the charging stations. For alternative parking, use the north, south or east parking lots at North Hollywood Station that are accessible from Chandler Boulevard or Cumpston Street.
The Orange Line North Hollywood Bus Terminal will also be temporarily closed beginning Sunday, July 28, through October 31, 2019, and pick-up and drop-off locations will be temporarily re-located.
The pick up/drop off locations will be relocated to the following:
• Board buses at northwest corner of Lankershim and Chandler.
• Exit buses at southeast corner of Lankershim and Cumpston.
As construction begins, Metro is encouraging riders to plan ahead and allow extra time to complete their trip. Red Line service at North Hollywood Station will not be affected.
