City of Carson North-South Shuttle

Carson Circuit
North/South Shuttle
The long anticipated extension of the North/South Shuttle to the Harbor Gateway Transit Center (formerly known as Artesia Transit Center) connects Carson residents to regional and local bus lines in Los Angeles County. Residents can easily travel to downtown Los Angeles using the MTA's downtown express bus thereby shortening their commute time.

Buses run every 50 minutes:
Monday - Friday 6:10 am to 7:44 am AND 3:20 pm to 4:04 pm ( NO MID_DAY SERVICE)
The North/South Shuttle no longer operate on Weekends, Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day.

The North/South Shuttle runs two loops in the morning and departs every fifty minutes from Harbor Gateway Transit Center (formerly known as Artesia Transit Center) located on 182nd Street/Albertoni. It runs a single loop in the afternoon. Carson Circuit connections also run in a loop. Regional bus lines run in both directions.

How to Use the North/South Shuttle Schedule
How to use the Carson Circuit Map and Schedule

Arrowheads ( ►) indicate MAJOR stops and point in the direction the route goes. Carson Circuit bus stops for each route are white dots (). Different colored dots at stops on the schedule side indicate other Carson Circuit routes ( ) or regional bus lines ( ) which also stop there. Black squares (■) on the map side indicate regional line bus stops.

Carson Circuit buses serve each stop every 40 minutes. The schedules show the times buses reach 10 major stops on each route. To tell when a bus reaches another stop, find the times on the schedule for the major stops immediately before and after it. The bus will arrive between these two times. Saturday stop times at the 10 major stops are shown inside the heavy red lines.
