Metro Remix at Wilshire and La Brea

Wilshire-LaBrea - 1 (1)

Residents of the Miracle Mile that park or board transit at Wilshire and La Brea have some new transit and parking options to consider now that bus stops are being relocated due to on-going construction activities in this area. The alternative transit plan has been set and the parking plan is currently in the works.

Discontinued Stops – Metro 720/20/786 Westbound stops have been abandoned at the northwest corner of Wilshire and La Brea, and LADOT Dash Fairfax, Metro 212/312 westbound stops have been abandoned at the southwest corner of La Brea and Wilshire.

New Alternative Locations – Metro 720/20 & AVTA 786 Westbound stops have moved to the north side of Wilshire at existing stop between Cloverdale and Cochran. The DASH Fairfax westbound there as well.

Metro 212/312 southbound stops located on Northwest corner of Wilshire and La Brea have been relocated to the west side of La Brea and 6th Street (along withDash Fairfax) and the west side of La Brea and 8th.

About Parking. When the Metro Customer Center at Wilshire and La Brea was demolished to make room for a Purple Line Extension station box construction area, the metered parking lot used by residents in this part of the Miracle Mile was also removed.  Metro is working on finding a replacement.

In a statement to the Larchmont Buzz, Kasey Shuda, Construction Relations Manager, Purple Line Extension, said, “Metro is working with our contractor and LADOT to find areas for replacement parking in the area around La Brea and Wilshire.  Two streets, Cloverdale and Ridgeley from Wilshire to 6th, have been identified as possible locations for additional parking.  In order to add more parking the streets would need to be converted to one-way streets northbound and diagonal parking would be added to one side of the street. Both streets would remain two-way streets until just north of the business parking lots that service businesses on Wilshire.  We will be meeting with property owners and residents of those streets to get the required 2/3 approval”.
