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 Fact Sheet .
Your proposals for the station names should reflect the following principles:
- Transit system context
- Property area context
- Neighborhood identity
