Purple Line Extension - Section 1

Section 1 of the Purple Line Extension Transit Project will add three new stations and 3.92 miles of new rail 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.

Wilshire/La Brea Station

The Wilshire/La Brea station will serve as an eastern gateway to the Miracle Mile area and provide easy north-south connections to La Brea Av. The station entrance is planned for the Metro-owned property on the northwest corner of Wilshire Bl and La Brea Av.

Wilshire/Fairfax Station

A station entrance is planned for the southeast corner of Wilshire Bl and Orange Grove Av. Metro is in discussions with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) about adding another entrance that LACMA would fund. Having two entrances will reduce the number of pedestrians crossing at street level, while still facilitating bus connections.

Wilshire/La Cienega Station

The entrance to the Wilshire/La Cienega station is planned for the northeast corner of Wilshire Bl and La Cienega Bl. Given its location on a highly utilized north/south  thoroughfare, the station will create seamless links to travel destinations along and near La Cienega Bl, such as Restaurant Row, Beverly Center and Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
