Patsaouras Plaza Busway

Situated in downtown Los Angeles and adjacent to Union Station, the Patsaouras Plaza Busway Station project will be a new transit busway station for the Metro Silver Line and other transit buses operating on the El Monte Busway. The design will place the busway south of Patsaouras Transit Plaza, in the median of the El Monte Busway next to US-101. The new busway station will allow buses travelling in both directions to serve Union Station with a minimum delay for passengers traveling to other destinations.

Project Highlights

  • A new pedestrian bridge will allow passengers to walk directly from the Patsaouras Transit Plaza to the new busway station.
  • New lighting and closed circuit TV systems (CCTV) provide commuters with a safer passage through the Union-Patsaouras Plaza.
  • New bus, light rail, and heavy rail connections (including connections to Metro, Metrolink, and Amtrak) will be added to this transportation hub to increase availability and access that will promote stress free, safe, and convenient commuting.
