Metro Local
A Metro Local NABI 40-LFW bus with its trademark orange color, named "California Poppy" by the agency.
LocaleLos Angeles County, California
Service typebus service
OperatorLACMTA, MV Transportation, Southland Transit, Transdev

Metro Local is a bus service type 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. 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 non-Metro Local livery may be placed into service on lines that normally use Metro Local buses.

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

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.

Routes

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

All service operated by Metro as of 12 September, 2021.

1-99 (Metro Local to/from Downtown Los Angeles)

Local bus service to/from Downtown Los Angeles and other areas. The line numbering begins at line 2 (Sunset Bl, a line leading west from downtown) and proceeds counterclockwise around Downtown Los Angeles, ending at line 96 (Riverside Dr.)
