Three new, larger buses have gone into operation in the area Dash bus line.
The buses replace older units in the program, which provides shuttle service every 20 minutes. The new buses can seat 30 people, five more than the older models, and have two wheelchair ramps per bus.
"The new buses are a much needed improvement to the Dash service in Wilmington," said harbor district Councilman Rudy Svorinich Jr. "The residents of Wilmington will find these buses to be an improvement."
Wilmington Dash is a shuttle service provided by the Los Angeles Department of Transportation that links shopping entertainment and community services in the area. The Wilmington shuttle is one of 19 community-based Dash transit services in Los Angeles and is one of the most widely used routes in the city.
