Freeway Service Patrol: "About FSP", and "Facts at a Glance" (Web Site)
The service patrol consists of 150 tow and service trucks. Approximately 422 freeway miles are served by the patrol. Designated portions of the freeway are segmented into 10-mile "beats" with three to five trucks patrolling each beat. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 6 AM to 7 PM, and Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM to 6:30 PM.
In 2004, a survey was conducted by the University of California, Berkeley, which found that the benefits of the Los Angeles Metro FSP outweighed the costs by more than 8 to 1.
The Los Angeles County Metro FSP is one of 13 FSPs operating in major metropolitan areas in the state.
