Phase 2 of the Metro Expo Line project is a 6.6-mile extension of the 80-station Metro Rail System from the existing station at Culver City west to Santa Monica.

The Expo Line Phase 2 runs along the old Pacific Electric Exposition right-of-way to 4th St. and Colorado Av. in downtown Santa Monica.

Phase 2 connects Santa Monica by rail to Downtown LA, Pasadena, San Fernando Valley, South Bay, Long Beach and dozens of points in between. With seven new stations serving diverse LA neighborhoods such as Century City, West Los Angeles, and Santa Monica, the Metro Rail system will now expand to 87 stations and over 93 miles of rail to destinations across L.A. County.

Major construction began in 2012 and was completed in 2015. The Exposition Construction Authority awarded the design-build contract for Phase 2 to Skanska-Rados, Joint Venture in March 2011.

The Metro Expo Line Extension to Santa Monica opened May 20th, 2016. Please see the Expo Line operational information.

Phase 2 includes new stations at:

  • Palms
  • Westwood/Rancho Park
  • Expo/Sepulveda
  • Expo/Bundy
  • 26th St./Bergamot
  • 17th St./SMC
