LA Metro has announced schedule changes for Bus Line 534, the main public transportation service between Santa Monica and Malibu. The December service changes include minor schedule changes with a route modification.
Eastbound Weekday Changes
The trip departing from Cliffside Dr and Dume Dr at 3:17 PM has been extended to depart from Trancas Cyn and PCH at 3:09 PM and still serve Cliffside Dr and Dume Dr at 3:18 PM
The frequency of Line 534 is increased from approximately every 20 minutes to every 15 minutes in the afternoon peak (added one trip during this time)
Westbound Weekday Changes
Maintained the two additional morning peak trips that were added in July.
Eastbound Saturday Changes

- The modified route in the eastbound direction will improve connectivity with the Expo Line in Downtown Santa Monica. Passengers transferring from Line 534 to the Expo Line will now be able to alight the bus at 5th St and Colorado Ave to board the train. This will make the transfer much closer what they are currently doing.
- The eastbound stops on Santa Monica Blvd at 6th St. and Santa Monica Blvd at Lincoln Blvd will be abandoned due to the route modification.
The December service changes are basically minor schedule changes with the route modification having a bigger impact on passengers. Metro has created service change notices that will be on all 534 buses. Metro ambassadors will also be handing them out at the two stops to be abandoned prior to the December 10 implementation date so as to notify affected passengers.
As always, passengers can go to www.metro.net to view updated timetables and maps for all of the December 2017 Service Changes.
