Starting Sunday, August 23, Long Beach Transit service changes will commence.
Route 1: Service is being extended to SouthBay Pavilion; California State University, Dominguez Hills; and the StubHub Center (home of the LA Galaxy). The route will now serve the Del Amo Blue Line Station instead of Wardlow Station. The last outbound trip from the Transit Gallery in downtown Long Beach that previously left at 8:35 p.m. will now be extended to 9:05 p.m. The last inbound arrival to the Transit Gallery that previously arrived at 8:35 p.m. will now arrive at 11:10 p.m. Due to the route change, Route 1 will no longer serve bus stops at: Wardlow Station Bay 2, and Wardlow at Magnolia southeast.

Route 131: Service is being improved from 60 to 45 minutes.
