Long Beach Transit announces its regular summer service change and start of its museum program which takes customers to many museums in Los Angeles and Orange County during the summer months.

Destinations include the Getty Center, Griffith Park Observatory, The Huntington and many others. New to the schedule this year are the Pasadena Museum of California Art, Pacific Asia Museum and the USS Iowa B-61. The program operates June 20 through August 18, 2013. Registration forms and a full schedule can be obtained at www.lbtransit.com/MuseumExpress or by calling 562)591-2301. Over-the-counter sales begin June 5 at the downtown Transit and Visitor Information Center on the southeast corner of 1st and Pine.
