Gold Line stations to close this Saturday for construction


Saturday commuters and Metro users should plan ahead. There will be no train service to three Gold Line stations this weekend.

Memorial Park, Lake and Allen stations will be closed from 7.a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday due to scheduled maintenance. From Del Mar and Sierra Madre Villa stations, buses will replace trains while work is performed.

All southbound trains will travel as far as Allen Station and return to APU/Citrus, while northbound trains will be Del Mar Station. From there, trains will turn back towards Union Station.

Metro spokeswoman Lexi Hinton said buses will match the train schedules as best as possible and run every 12 minutes. Additionally, she said Pasadena Transit will offer free rides on all routes between 11 a.m. and 5p.m.

“Regular service to all stations will resume after 5 p.m. Saturday,” Hinton said, adding that work-related delays could change this. “Customers planning to travel in the work area should allow extra time between trains and buses.”
