Route Description Hyperlapse Video of Segment N
Route Features: Segment N starts out in the first half as an suburban residential excursion through the hills of City Terrace, Boyle Heights, and East LA, where the majority of the stairways lie. Then in the second half, the route becomes very industrial and then commercial, with far fewer stairways, crossing through the flat-lands of Commerce, Bell, Huntington Park and Florence Graham. The second half also provides more services along major streets and passes a few of nicely refurbished parks along the Blue Line corridor.
Start Location: Eastern Ave at City Terrace Dr, which is bus accessible via both Metro Bus Line 70 and Metro Bus Line 71 south/west to DTLA and Metro Bus Line 256 north/east toward Highland Park and Pasadena.
Finish Location: 103rd St/Watts Towers Metro A (Blue) Line Station, which is rail and bus accessible north-south via the Metro A (Blue) Line, and east-west on Metro Bus Line 117 along 103rd Street.
