Weekday trains will run every 7-8 minutes, stopping at all stations, during peak periods and every 12 minutes during the mid-day period. Weekend trains will run every 12 minutes from mid-morning until early evening.
Weekday Express Service will be discontinued.

Metro realizes that at the beginning of any change in service, our passengers may experience some scheduling difficulties during the initial adjustment period. We ask for your patience and understanding.
Ever since Metro improved the running time of the Gold Line, the time saved on the express service was trivial (the new local end-to-end running time is about the same as the express service before the improvements); also, the Gold Line is not getting a lot of riders compared to other lines (even the busway) so this would give those on non-express stations peace of mind that all trains stops there. This is not the same as running Rapids with Locals, that's an issue with improving a crowded line; which the Gold Line is not.
