Long Beach Transit (LBT) will implement service changes which will take effect on Sunday, Aug. 28. The changes include the following:
Route 104 is a new route that will serve the El Dorado Park and Nature Center, operating on Spring Street between Studebaker Road and Norwalk. It will also bring new service to the Long Beach Airport, creating a direct connection from the airport to Metro’s Blue Line Willow Station.
Route 102 will now serve the Long Beach Airport, connecting directly to Metro’s Blue Line Willow Station.
Route 101 will operate from Santa Fe Avenue and 25th Street to Civic Center and Joliet in Hawaiian Gardens via Carson Street direct for better travel across town. Route 101 service to Lakewood Mall and Centralia will be eliminated; however, routes 93, 103, 111, 112 and 191 still serve the mall. Route 103 will still serve the Lakewood High School area along with routes 91, 92, 93, 112 and 172.
Route 103 will now run day and night and have peak period trips that extend to Lakewood High School when classes are in session.
Passports A and D will have increased service to CSULB and Catalina Landing.
Passports B and C will have decreased service during non-peak periods. Passport C will operate every 12 minutes during the mid-morning on weekdays and every eight minutes during the day on the weekends. Early-morning service on both routes will operate every 30 instead of 20 minutes before 6am on weekdays and 7am on weekends.
Route 181 will have a change in night service on Magnolia from the First Street Transit Gallery to Anaheim Street. Trips will leave from the Transit Gallery at :05 after the hour and depart the Wardlow Station at :37 after the hour.
