Do you ride the bus on La Brea Ave? Would you take more trips by bus if the buses ran every 7-8 minutes in a dedicated bus lane during rush hour?
The La Brea Av Bus Priority Lanes Project is an important step toward building a safer and faster multi-modal transit network in Los Angeles. Located along La Brea Ave between Sunset Bl and Coliseum St, the project would add bus priority lanes in both directions during weekday peak hours from 7–10am and 3–7pm.
Metro has a plan to make it easier to get around LA. Bus service is the backbone of public transit. Bus priority lanes are key to successfully providing fast, frequent, reliable, and accessible service. These lanes would improve bus speeds by as much as 15% or more, increasing service frequency and reliability without adding more infrastructure.
How These New Lanes Would Work
Converts the curbside lane in each direction into a bus priority and right turn only lane on weekdays during peak hours from 7–10am and 3–7pm
Buses would run every seven to eight minutes during bus lane hours
Two general traffic lanes and left turn lanes would be maintained in each direction
One-hour extension of existing weekday No Parking restriction in the mornings and evenings on both sides of the street
Benefits for All Street Users
Improves speed, frequency and reliability of bus service on the corridor
Improves safety of crossing streets and walking to nearby bus stops
Improves connections to the E Line (Expo), Purple (D Line) Extension Transit Project (currently under construction) and the nearby B Line (Red) at Hollywood/Highland
Maintains existing midday, weekend and overnight parking for residents, businesses, and visitors to the area
Provides quick and easy access to jobs, homes, businesses, and other key locations such as the Hollywood Walk of Fame, West Hollywood Gateway Shopping Center, Rancho Cienega Recreation Center and Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza
