Montebello Bus Lines’ (MBL) primary responsibility is to provide transportation services to residents of Montebello and neighboring cities. MBL is the third largest municipal bus system in Los Angeles County, behind Long Beach Transit and Santa Monica’s Big Blue Bus. With a fleet of 66 buses, MBL serves over 8 million passengers a year throughout the communities of Alhambra, Bell Gardens, Boyle Heights, Commerce, Downtown Los Angeles, East Los Angeles, La Mirada, Montebello, Monterey Park, Pico Rivera, Rosemead, South Gate and Whittier.
Montebello Dial-A-Taxi (DAT) provides transportation services for seniors over 62 in age and qualified disabled residents of any age and their attendants. The service utilizes vehicles equipped with wheelchair lifts upon request at the time of scheduling. DAT provides transportation service within the City of Montebello and medical trips within the designated DAT boundary service area.
MBL is also responsible for the operation of “Montebello LINK,” which offers curb-to-curb shuttle service to and from the Montebello Metrolink Station and employment centers in Bell, Commerce, Montebello, Monterey Park, Pico Rivera, and Rosemead. The service is scheduled to meet each arriving and departing Metrolink train.
In addition to providing transportation services, the department also maintains the Montebello Metrolink Station and over 800 bus stops. MBL secures dedicated transportation funding from federal, state and local agencies to provide public transit services.
