Council today approved the recommendations of a Downtown DASH study that would reroute the DASH A, eliminate the City Hall Shuttle and use a freed up bus to create a new route serving Central City East. The newly approved route will run in a clockwise circuit, passing by Little Tokyo, Central City East and the Flower Market.

The DASH A route will be modified to serve the City's Figueroa Plaza property. Instead of turning south on Hope, the service will swing west to Freemont street before coming south on Figueroa. A signal change at 3rd street will allow the bus to make it's way over to Flower and continue south.

DOT told council that the changes have to wait for the newly-approved signal work to be completed, and that the new services could be in operation in three to four months.
