Metro Responds to Regional Connector Legal Challenges

The Metro Regional Connector Project extends from the Metro Gold Line Little Tokyo/Arts District Station to the 7th Street/Metro Center Station in downtown Los Angeles, allowing passengers to transfer to Blue, Expo, Red and Purple Lines, bypassing Union Station.  The 1.9-mile alignment will serve Little Tokyo, the Arts District, Civic Center, The Historic Core, Broadway, Grand Av, Bunker Hill, Flower St and the Financial District. 

This new Metro Rail extension will also provide a one-seat ride for travel across Los Angeles County.  From the Metro Gold Line, passengers will be able to travel from Azusa to Long Beach and from East Los Angeles to Santa Monica without transferring lines.

The Regional Connector will improve access to both local and regional destinations by providing continuous thru service between these lines and providing connectors to other rail lines via the 7th St/Metro Center Station.

The new Metro Rail extension will offer an alternative transportation option to congested roadways and provide significant environmental benefits, economic development, and employment opportunities throughout Los Angeles County.

Project at a Glance

  • A 1.9-mile underground light-rail system connecting the Metro Gold Line to the 7th Street/Metro Center Station
  • Direct connection between Azusa and Long Beach and between East Los Angeles and Santa Monica
  • Three new stations:
    • 1st Street/Central Av
    • 2nd Street/Broadway
    • 2nd Place/Hope St
  • All stations include public art components and provide convenient and safe access
  • Life-of-Project Budget: $1.427 billion
  • Forecasted opening: 2020

The Regional Connector Project receives partial funding from Measure R, which is a half-cent sales tax increase approved by voters in 2008.
