Schedules, Fares & Maps
The RTA Fixed Route bus system consists of 7 regularly scheduled
routes and 6 routes on Saturday. RTA's Fixed Route service operates
six days a week, 359 days a year with individual route times
varying by season. LACRTA uses a flag stop method for the bus
to stop. Simply stand by the curb of one of our bus routes
and raise your hand to flag down the bus as it approaches. Do
not approach the bus until it has made a complete stop and the
doors open. If there are passengers alighting from the bus,
stand back and allow them to clear the step well before you enter
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) mandates equal
opportunity in employment, transportation, telecommunications, and
places of public accommodations for individuals with
disabilities. As a local transit provider, the ADA had a
significant impact on the kind of services LACRTA
offers. As such, the LACRTA offers complementary
paratransit service, know locally as UPLIFT; fixed route buses
provide special accommodations for the disabled; the Transfer
Station is ADA accessible; and more. You can find more
information at the links below . . .
