Haaaaaaallelujah. Metro's big announcement today is better than all its 2012 ribbon-cuttings combined: The transportation authority's official blog reports (with three exclamation points!!!) that, beginning in late July, "all Metro Rail lines will run until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. That includes..."
"... the Red/Purple Line subway, the Blue Line, Expo Line, Green Line and Gold Line."
And one bus -- the Orange Line -- will now be running until 2:40 a.m. Here are all the specifics so far:(link)
This is a big transit revolution in LA but it's not getting nearly enough local press.
Well the reason for that is that Metro hasn't yet made an official announcement on the late night weekend hours. It's only been announced on Metro's The Source blog and several other online sources. They are trying to start it on the last weekend of this month, once it's a go, they'll alert the media high and low.
