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.”

Many transit riders have complained about the travel between Venice and Lincoln boulevards on the Westside to Venice and Broadway in downtown L.A.
A Metro spokesman says riders should see the improvements within the next year and a half.
