Trains will run nearly every 10 minutes. The expanded evening train services will begin on November 13.

Metro will work with buiseness to provide Destination Discounts, encouraging Los Angeles residents to enjoy nightlife in the city without worrying about parking or finding a way home.

"With this enhanced service, we're hoping to make it easier for Metro riders to take advantage of all of the great businesses, restaurants and sporting and entertainment venues around town," said L.A. Mayor and Metro Board Chair Antonio Villaraigosa.  

A Metro ticket presented at the following restaurants will give you specific discounts:

  • Bucca di Peppo, 10 percent
  • Big Wangs Sports Bar & Restaurant, 15 percent
  • Kelly's Coffee & Fudge Factory, 10 percent
  • The Grill on Hollywood, complimentary appetizer with one entree

If there is a significant increase of riders on these Metro lines at night, the organization will consider expanding evening services to the other Metro lines.
