Los Angeles County Metro has delayed scheduled changes to some of its bus routes that were supposed to go into effect Sunday.

Metro had set the date months ago to ax a few of its bus lines and add new stops to some of its rapid buses. Agency officials say they’d hoped to create easier access to the nearly-completed Exposition Light Rail Line, an eight-and-a-half-mile route that will eventually connect downtown L.A. with Culver City.

But spokesman Marc Littman says Metro yanked planned changes to about 20 bus lines at the last minute. He says engineers need more time to analyze the way those changes will affect riders.

Littman says he expects Metro to settle on bus route schedules before the Expo Line opens in the spring.
