Big and small changes could be coming to the DASH bus line serving your neighborhood.  After consultants and residents weighed in, the L.A. Department of Transportation has in recent months unveiled proposed service and route changes as well entirely new lines. But some of the changes designed as improvements require trade offs that are not going over well in some neighborhoods. One of those is the change to the Boyle Heights-East L.A. DASH line. It would connect with the Gold Line station at Indiana Street and that has been met with some resistance because that would mean dropping service along Rowan Avenue, according to transportation officials. logo72-640-10-10-2014-10-29-29-PM1

The proposed changes extend the line from L.A. County-USC Medical Center to Lincoln Heights. Also, service would be added on Sunday and hours and frequency increased.

The Department of Transportation is expected to make final recommendations to city leaders by the end of the year.  The public can still weigh in on the proposed changes by Sept. 30. Send comments to ideas@ladottransit.com.
