El Sol (The Sun in Spanish—also known as the East Los Angeles Shuttle) is a bus line that serves the unincorporated East Los Angeles area of Los Angeles County. It is a service of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works.[1]

There are currently three lines in the El Sol Shuttle service:

At the East Los Angeles Civic Center at 3rd Street and Fetterly Ave. passengers can transfer among the three shuttle lines. The shuttles routes are designed so that residents can connect to various regional bus and rail services, including Alhambra Community Transit, City of Commerce Municipal Bus, Foothill Transit, LADOT DASH & Commuter Express, MTA, Metrolink, Montebello Bus Lines, and Monterey Park Spirit Bus. The stops include the Roybal Comprehensive Health Center, the California State University, Los Angeles, East LA Community College. Stops also include the shopping areas on Cesar Chavez Avenue, Whittier Boulevard, and the Commerce Shopping Center.

The service began June 5, 2000, starting with one-way circular lines that were later upgraded to two-way service on each of the lines.

Service for Sundays began November 15, 2009 with the opening of the Gold Line Eastside extension
