Division 18 - Carson Division. Was located on the West side of the 110 Freeway just north of 190th (which turns into Victoria). This would have put the old division about ¼ mile from it's current location. The former Division 18 property is currently occupied by a school bus company. There was also a prior Division 18 location which predated this one, location unknown.
Location 30 - Formerly known as CMF (Central Maintenance Facility). It was renamed about 1997 as the RRC (Regional Rebuild Center). This location rebuilds all MTA buses. This same facility is also currently the home of the LAPD Transit Bus Division Station. The station itself was originally built for and was occupied by the MTA Transit Police up until their merger with the Los Angeles Police Department/Los Angeles Sheriff Department in November of 1997. The facilities are now used by the LAPD Transit Bus Detail(TBD). This includes the uniform patrol for the MTA buses in the city of Los Angeles. Also in the same station are: The LAPD GHOST Detail (carried over from the MTA Police) - Graffiti Habitual Offender Suppression Team, and The LAPD Pick Pocket Detail (newly established for the buses and trains) the first and ONLY pick pocket crime suppression detail since the last LAPD rail unit had one (unknown date or year) many years ago.
Location 51 - Transit Police Headquarters at 1900 S. Figueroa (Figueroa and Washington). This location number is currently open (no location assigned). This facility was abandoned in 1996 for the new facility at Location 30. Also, prior to occupying the facility at Washington/ Figueroa, the TP were located out of Division 2 when it was not an operational division. At that time mechanics at Division 2 worked on buses but no lines ran out of the Division.
Location 55 - at 316 W. 3rd Street. This facility was abandoned about 1994, and the facilities were moved to another location south of 3rd between Broadway and Spring Streets. This facility was abandoned in late 1995 at the request of the City of Los Angeles that the MTA police discontinue the footbeat program. The newer facility is currently occupied by the LAPD Central Division Footbeat.
Location 60 - Central Control Facility is actually in county area ("Willowbrook"), Los Angeles on the mail. This facility's name has been changed (in early 1998) to the ROC (Rail Operations Center). Location 60 is currently also the home of the LASD Transit Services Bureau. They patrol the Blueline, Greenline, and buses running anywhere outside of the city of Los Angeles.
The LAPD and LASD division designations within their agencies match up with the numbers to the MTA locations where they are assigned. The Group number (which is also the huge white number visible on the trunk of the squad car) for the LAPD Transit Group (including the Transit Bus and Rail Divisions) is "30" and operates out of MTA Location 30. The LASD transit unit designation is "60" and are visible on their units in black numbers on the top of the car, just in front of the lightbar. The LASD is located out of Location 60 (ROC).
MTA has also established a code and location for the Gateway Building. It was given this designation not long after the building itself was occupied by the MTA in about 1996. "USG" stands for Union Station - Gateway and includes the MTA building, the east portal to Union Station, and Patsouras Plaza (the bus turnaround and terminal). Note: "USG" is the only designation, no location or division number. For law enforcement, USG is the home of the LAPD Transit Rail Division (Redline), along with both the LASD and LAPD transit administration and detectives units.
