Locale Los Angeles County, California
Service type bus service
Operator LACMTA, MV Transportation, Southland Transit, Veolia Transportation

Metro Local is a bus system in Los Angeles County operated by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro). This retronym designation was placed to differentiate it from the Metro Rapid service (before the advent of several Rapids, they were simply known as "Metro lines"). Metro Local buses cover both local, limited-stop, and shuttle bus services.

Metro Local buses are distinguished by their prominent orange color. Based on availability of equipment, units in Metro Rapid and rarely Metro Express livery may be placed into service on lines that normally uses regular buses.

There are bus lines that are operated under contract with MV Transportation, Southland Transit, and Veolia Transportation.

Route Numbers[edit]

Metro buses are given route numbers that indicate the type of service offered. This method was devised originally by the SCRTD, Metro's predecessor.

  • 1-99 (00-series, xx): Local bus service to/from Downtown Los Angeles and other areas. The route numbering begins at Route 2 (Sunset Boulevard, a route leading west from downtown) and proceeds counterclockwise around Downtown Los Angeles, ending at route 96 (Riverside Drive.)
  • 100-199 (100-series, 1xx): East-west service, not necessarily serving Downtown Los Angeles.
  • 200-299 (200-series, 2xx): North-south service, not necessarily serving Downtown Los Angeles.
  • 300-399 (300-series, 3xx): Limited-stop versions of traditional local routes, which make fewer stops and generally operate during peak times. Most limited-stop routes are designated by placing a 3 before a main route number (example: the limited-stop version of route 2 is route 302). Most limited-stop routes have been replaced by Metro Rapid routes. Limited-stop routes are sometimes branded as Metro Limited.[citation needed]
  • 600-699 (600-series, 6xx): Shuttle and special event services.

Metro Local buses can also be found on 400-series (4xx) and 500-series (5xx) routes, which are Metro Express routes with different fare structures and routing.
