Improved bus service and more buses per hour are coming to Burbank beginning September 12.
Metro will be making additional service changes beginning September 12, 2021, as a part of Phase 2 of its NextGen Bus Plan. These new service changes will better align with travel patterns and serve to improve service and frequency across its network. These changes will include route changes, line and bus stop consolidation, and frequency changes.
BTMO is dedicated to providing its members and commuters with the most up-to-date info on these changes, and will continue to do so as the NextGen program is rolled out across the Metro system.
New posted schedules are now available and if you use the Transit app, Metro’s official smartphone app, a preview of the upcoming changes will also become available soon.
As a reminder, front-door boarding resumed on June 27 and buses are still fare-free. Riders are encouraged to TAP when riding Metro Rail.
