Purple Line Extension Art Program

Metro Art > In The Works > Purple Line Extension Art Program (under construction)

The Metro Purple Line Extension Transit Project will provide a high-capacity, high-speed and dependable alternative for commuters to travel between downtown Los Angeles, the Miracle Mile, Beverly Hills and Westwood. This project is being built in three sections. (Read more about the transit project here.)
