Venice Blvd. Rapid Bus to Get Traffic Signal Priority


From Councilman Rosendahl:

Riders on the Venice Rapid Bus Line 733 will soon experience a shorter commute.

Metro just confirmed to the Office of Councilmember Bill Rosendahl that the transit agency will soon spend $6.2 million to install traffic signal priority on Venice Boulevard and speed up the 733 rapid line. The funding will also include bus shelter construction.

“I’ve been a tireless advocate for a Rapid Line on Venice,” said Rosendahl who Chairs the City’s Transportation Committee. “My constituents will be thrilled to hear that a shorter commute is on the horizon. Thank you Metro for keeping your commitment that Traffic Signal Priority would be installed in the district.”

A Metro spokesman says riders should see the improvements within the next year and a half.

The 733 is a key downtown-to-the-beach connection and also has a stop near the Expo Line’s Culver City station (The Source). A schedule and route map for the 733 can be found here.
