Purple Line Extension - Section 2

The second section of the Purple Line Extension Transit Project includes 2.59 miles of additional tracks to Metro’s Rail system and two new stations at Wilshire/Rodeo and Century City/Constellation. The project received full Federal funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation in January 2017 and is now under construction. Construction for Section 2 is planned to begin in 2018. The extension is expected to begin operations by 2025 and will continue the Purple Line from Miracle Mile through Beverly Hills and into Century City.

Wilshire/Rodeo Station



The Wilshire/Rodeo station box will be located under Wilshire Bl from Beverly Dr to Canon Dr, with the station entrance on the southwest corner of Wilshire Bl and Reeves Dr. Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, the station will not only service those who live and work in the area, but also visitors seeking to shop and dine in the Golden Triangle Area.

 Century City/Constellation Station

The Century City/Constellation station box will be located under Constellation Bl between Century Park East and Solar Way (between Avenue for the Stars and Century Park West), with a station entrance at the northeast corner of Constellation Bl and Avenue of the Stars.
