Passenger service on the Expo Line extension from Culver City to Santa Monica won’t begin until May 20, but trains began running on the route Monday at 12- to 20-minute intervals to simulate full service as part of preparations to open the line.Website Insert Cars and Financing copy

The simulated full service means motorists near the route will encounter lowered rail-crossing gates more frequently. Trains will begin running as early as 4 a.m., and continue until roughly 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and as late as 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, according to Metro.

Trains have been running along the new stretch of track for months, but only on a limited testing basis.
