Beginning this Sunday, June 27, Metro will introduce a new Rapid line which will travel between the City of Santa Monica and downtown Los Angeles along Venice Boulevard.
The new Rapid Line 733 will run seven days a week from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.. Buses will run every 10 minutes during rush hour and every 15 to 20 minutes during the off-peak hours. Metro Rapid service has a number of desirable characteristics such as fewer stops, frequent service, level bus boarding/alighting and a bus signal priority system that when all implemented together, provide fast and frequent bus service.
“I have advocated for a Rapid Line on Venice Boulevard since I’ve been in office” says Councilman Bill Rosendahl. “Metro’s decision to introduce the Rapid Line 733 demonstrates the power of persistence.” If you take the 733, you might just have Rosendahl sitting next to you, as he says “I look forward to taking my first trip this Tuesday morning on my commute to City Hall. I hope everyone can soon take advantage of this convenient bus line. As a community, we can all take pride in Rapid Line 733 as it shows what we can accomplish working together towards a common goal.”
