The Source: Three-month closure of Patsaouras Bus Plaza begins July 11

Patsaouras Bus Plaza will close beginning July ll through Oct 10 to undergo needed upgrades after 20 years of wear and tear. While the closure is in effect, work crews will resurface the plaza, replace the waterproofing and draining system and add a pedestrian safety fence.
Metro buses currently entering the plaza will be relocated to temporary stop locations on the corner of Cesar Chavez/Vignes or Cesar Chavez/Alameda. See where your stop is being moved in the maps below.

Access Services shuttles and LAX FlyAway buses will pick-up and drop-off customers in front of Union Station West. Megabus will use the Amtrak customer pick-up and drop-off area also on the west side of Union Station.
All pedestrian walkways from the corner of Vignes/Cesar Chavez and Ramirez/Vignes will remain open so customers can walk between the temporary bus stops.
As a reminder, the new pick-up/drop-off area for private vehicles at Union Station East is currently under construction and is set to open July 9. The facility will be accessible to all vehicles under 8 feet tall by entering the underground parking garage on Vignes.
Separating private vehicles from larger buses and shuttles will allow easier traffic flow and safer navigating in and out of the plaza. For help finding temporary stop locations, call 323. GO. METRO or check back here as more information will be announced closer to the closure date.
