Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project

Metro’s Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project will extend light rail transit service from the existing Metro E Line (Expo) at Crenshaw and Exposition Boulevards in Los Angeles, and merge with Metro C Line (Green) at the Aviation/LAX Station on Aviation Boulevard and Interstate 105 in the City of El Segundo. The line will travel 8.5 miles and serve the cities of Los Angeles, Inglewood and El Segundo.

Once in operation, this line will offer additional transportation options to congested roadways and provide significant environmental benefits, economic development and employment opportunities throughout LA County. Riders will have easier connections within the Metro Rail system, municipal bus lines and other regional transportation services. The project includes the Southwestern Yard Maintenance Facility, a facility with the capacity to service and store up to 70 light-rail vehicles (LRV). This facility will serve the new Crenshaw/LAX Project and the existing Metro C Line (Green), housing general administration, operation and support services. The facility will be equipped to perform inspections, body and heavy repairs, and cleaning and washing of Metro’s growing LRV fleet.

Metro is also constructing a transit station that will connect LAX to the regional rail system. The Airport Metro Connector (AMC) transit station at Aviation Bl and 96th St will provide a direct connection to LAX’s future Automated People Mover (APM).

The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project will serve the Crenshaw District, Inglewood, Westchester, and surrounding areas with eight new stations:

2. Martin Luther King Jr.
3. Leimert Park

6. Downtown Inglewood
7. Westchester/Veterans
8. Aviation/Century

The project began construction in 2014 and anticipates completion in 2021. The Crenshaw/LAX Project is one of 12 transit projects funded by Measure R, the half-cent sales tax approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2008.
