Purple Line Extension - Section 3

The last section of the Purple Line Extension Transit Project, Section 3, will add 2.56 miles of new rail to Metro’s Rail system and connect downtown Los Angeles to the Westside. The two new stations will be added at Wilshire/Westwood and on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs property. Section 3 received the approval to move forward by Metro's board in 2016. Currently, in pre-construction, the project is anticipated to begin construction in 2019 and be open for operations in 2026.
