Service is extended to about 2am on Friday and Saturday nights. Weekend daytime service runs about every 12 minutes. This line uses Proof of payment fare system.

At 7th Street/Metro Center in downtown, it connects with Metro B Line and D Line. At Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station, it connects with Metro C Line line. The Blue line shares stations with the E Line at 7th Street/Metro Center and Pico stations.

After a system renovation in 2019 the Blue Line has been renamed as "A" line (while retaining blue color for symbol) to align with new naming policy as more lines are being added onto the system and the system is running out of core colors.
