Purple Line Extension Section 1 Station Naming


Section 1 of the Purple Line Extension Transit Project will add three new stations and 3.92 miles of new subway to Metro’s Rail system. The three new stations will be located at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Cienega. The project will extend the current Purple Line from Koreatown through Miracle Mile and is expected to begin operations in 2023.

Metro staff originally developed a set of geographically-based names for these stations and are now seeking input on those names. For more information about the station naming process, take a look at the Station Naming web page .

Outreach took place from June through September 2019 to solicit input on station names for the Purple Line Extension Section 1 subway stations. We received 475 responses. Below are the Top 5 responses from stakeholders for each station area.
