The Expo Line
Expo Line Light Rail Phase 1 Phase 2 Criteria Neighbors
Santa Monica to downtown L.A. livable communities' alternative to traffic!
Speed - Comfort - Capacity
We are an all-volunteer group of citizens joined together to support an alternative to Los Angeles' world-record traffic: a fast, comfortable, safe, quiet, exhaust-free, high-capacity light rail transit line with landscaping and bike path from downtown L.A. to Santa Monica.
The Expo Line will serve Westside and downtown jobs; recreational, educational, and cultural opportunities from Santa Monica Beach to Exposition Park, Staples Center, and downtown; and the over 800,000 people who live within 2 miles. And it will link the Westside to L.A.'s growing rail network.
In fact, light rail is popular, proven, and growing in nearly every major western U.S. city, including Portland, San Francisco, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Denver, Phoenix, Seattle, Dallas, and Houston.
After an outpouring of public support, Metro approved the first half to Culver City in 2001. The first half is open and the second half to Santa Monica is beginning construction. But your support still matters until trains are running all the way!
