Metro is building a rail line that will provide riders a seamless journey from Azusa to Long Beach and from East Los Angeles to Santa Monica, through the downtown LA core. The project includes three new underground stations and extends from the L Line (Gold) in Little Tokyo and Arts District communities to the A (Blue) and E (Expo) Lines at 7th Street/Metro Center Station.
Location: Central Los Angeles
Type: Better Transit
Forecasted Opening: 2023
This project makes it easier to ride across LA County as passengers will be able to travel between Azusa and Long Beach, and between East Los Angeles and Santa Monica, without transferring lines. It will improve connections, bringing together the Metro L (Gold), A (Blue), E (Expo), B (Red) and D (Purple) Lines at the 7th Street/Metro Center Station, and increase opportunities for jobs, education and essential services.
