Metro Green Line travels at 55 miles per hour via the 105 freeway but leaves the freeway at its Aviation Station. Here, the Metro Green Line becomes a pseudo-monorail. Like the Blue Line, it is also powered by electricity (independant of the DWP so during a city-wide power-outage, Metro's light rail service still runs).
Platforms and stations are well lit, monitored but elevated platforms at non-freeway stations do not have guards so be careful around the edge of the station. It is at least a 60 foot drop! Like the blue and red lines, the Green Line is wheelchair and bicycle friendly (although, you must obtain a special pass from Metro to bring a bicycle aboard any Metro vehicle).
The following sections include information about the Metro Green Line
