Metro Rush+ program to ease crowding
Metro is preparing to roll out a new program aimed at easing packed trains during rush hour.
The transit agency’s “Metro Rush+” program will serve more customers, reduce crowding and provide new transfer-free travel opportunities. The program begins on June 18.
As part of Rush+, 21 stations on the Green, Yellow, Blue and Orange lines will get more frequent service with six additional trains every hour of rush hour.
Metro General Manager and CEO, Richard Sarles, appeared on ABC7’s Good Morning America, where he talked about what changes riders can expect.
