Long Beach Transit Announces Service Changes
2014-05-19 · By Editor
Starting Sunday, June 1, Long Beach Transit service changes will commence. In addition to usual adjustments, the Passport route will be on a long-term detour as the City of Long Beach works on the Pine Avenue Improvement project which is scheduled in segments through April 2015.
Routes 131 and 171: Routes have been extended from Alamitos Bay (131) and Marketplace (171) to Electric and Main Street in Seal Beach. Due to the extension there are route and schedule changes.
Passport: Additional service has been added on weekend afternoons and evenings to improve service during the summer. Since April 2014, the Passport route has been on detour. The current detour has the Passport traveling along Pacific Ave. and Long Beach Blvd. instead of Pine Ave. north of Ocean. The bus stops on Pine between 1st St. and Ocean will be closed during the detour. For northbound trips, customers should use the stop on Pacific at Ocean. For southbound trips, customers should use the temporary stop on the south side of Ocean at Pacific. This long-term detour can change at any time.
