Metro’s plan for better transit includes a connection to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) with the Airport Metro Connector Transit Station (AMC) at Aviation Bl/96th Street.
Once in operation, this new station will let riders transfer quickly and easily between LAX and Metro’s network.
Location: South Bay Cities
Type: Better Transit
Forecasted Opening: 2024
Located on the future line under construction as the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project, AMC includes a light rail station, bus plaza, bicycle parking, customer service center, passenger pick-up and drop-off area, and direct connection to the future LAX Automated People Mover (APM) to provide more options for travelers and employees to get to the airport.
Once in operation, this new station, known as the LAX/Metro Transit Center station, will let riders transfer quickly and easily between LAX and Metro’s network.
Metro awarded a contract to construct this project to Tutor Perini Corporation in 2021. Major construction work is currently underway.
In June 2022, the Metro Board approved the station name, LAX/Metro Transit Center Station.
This project is expected to open for service in 2024.
