(INGLEWOOD, CA) Beginning on Monday, November 8, 2010, the I-Line Trolley will now include new stops at The Village at Century shopping complex. The new stops will appear at the following locations: Prairie Ave. and Hardy St.; Century Blvd. and Doty Ave.; Century Blvd. and Club Dr.; Century Blvd. and Village Dr.; Crenshaw Blvd. and Century Blvd.; Crenshaw Blvd. and Hardy St.; and 90th St. and West Blvd./Carlton Way.
Free Trolley service will operate Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to Noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., beginning and ending each loop at the Inglewood Senior Center, located at Vincent Park, 330 Centinela Avenue. New signage containing the number to the trolley dispatch office to facilitate easy access to information on the trolley's location has been posted at the stops.
The Trolley will continue to connect shopping areas, public service agencies, the Inglewood Senior Center, five senior housing complexes, and connection points to Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) bus service. However, six stops from the current route will be eliminated, because no or few passengers used them. The length of the new route will be approximately one hour.
This new route was developed as a result of citizen requests for stops along the extended route. City staff conducted surveys, studied and drive-tested proposed routes, and included recommendations from the MTA and City transportation specialists. Maps are available on the Trolley, and at the Inglewood Senior Center (330 Centinela Avenue) and information desk at City Hall (One Manchester Boulevard 1st floor).
The I-Line Trolley is funded by Proposition C grant funds and Proposition A Incentive grants from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
