Metro has a plan to make it easier to get around LA. Bus service is the backbone of the public transit system, which is why the NextGen Bus Plan reimagined the bus system to focus on providing fast, frequent, reliable, and accessible service. A key element in implementing this plan is the use of bus priority lanes.

Project Overview

The Florence Av Bus Priority Lanes Project is an important step toward building a safer and faster multi-modal transit network in Los Angeles. Located along a 5.4-mile segment of Florence Av, between West Bl and the Florence A Line (Blue) Station, the project would add bus priority lanes in both directions for Metro Line 111 during weekday peak hours from 7–10am and 3–7pm.

  • 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 be planned to 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
