Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS) is the core of LA County’s transit system and the largest multi-modal transit station in Southern California, connecting over 17 million people across five counties. As the hub of Metro’s multimodal transit system, Union Station directly serves Metro and municipal bus lines, Metrolink and Amtrak, as well as the Metro Gold Line and Metro Red/Purple lines.
Sitting just north of Downtown Los Angeles, the station is also located between significant cultural communities, including El Pueblo de Los Angeles, Little Tokyo, Chinatown, Civic Center, and the Historic Core. Its central location and regional transit connectivity give the station immense potential to become a vibrant urban destination.
Metro’s approach to advancing transit oriented communities at LAUS is centered on realizing a robust and diverse work program that enhances passenger experience, creates safer connections to surrounding communities, explores commercial development opportunities at and around the station, and ensures that Union Station is integrated into the larger revitalization in Downtown Los Angeles.
All improvement projects at the station are listed and described further on the LAUS website.
