MTA Proposes Cut To Westwood Bus Service

The 305 line, which carries many Westside workers from South LA, may be cut this spring.

A Metro bus that snakes from Westwood to neighborhoods in South Los Angeles may be on the chopping block when the Expo Line opens this spring.

The Los Angeles Times reports the 305 line would be among the bus lines that would be eliminated in Metro's effort to scale back and save money. Cutting four percent of bus service hours -- about 305,000 hours total -- would save Metro approximately $23 million each year, officials told the newspaper.

But the Expo Line, which is expected to open this spring, would not be a perfect substitute for the riders who take the 305 bus to Westwood for work or school or medical care at UCLA.

"If they cut this line, that means those going all the way to UCLA, instead of riding one bus, they'll have to ride three," a 305 bus driver told the Los Angeles Times.
