Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS) is Southern California’s primary transportation hub, connecting multiple counties with a combined population exceeding 20 million people.
Location: Central Los Angeles
Phase: Design & Engineering
Type: Better Transit
Forecasted Opening: 2028 (Phase A)
Metro’s plan for better transit includes improvements at Union Station and better connections between Metrolink, Metro Rail and bus services.
The Link US project proposes the integration of new run-through tracks on an elevated rail yard to improve operational flexibility and expand capacity at Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS).
The Link US Project also envisions a new concourse for shorter wait times and a better transfer experience. Link US will also prepare Union Station for the arrival of future high-speed rail service.
Metro is partnering closely with the High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) on this project, as well as working with the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA), the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA), Amtrak, Los Angeles – San Diego – San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Rail Corridor Agency, California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and the cities of Los Angeles and Vernon.
Metro completed an environmental review of this project under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) in 2019. Environmental review under the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) is currently underway.
