The Exposition Light Rail Transit Line (Expo Line) travels along the Exposition railroad right-of-way between downtown Los Angeles and Culver City. It shares a track and two stations (7th St/Metro Center and Pico) with the Metro Blue Line as it leaves downtown Los Angeles. It then travels along the Exposition right-of-way to the newly approved and funded aerial station at Venice/Robertson. Nine new stations were constructed along the Expo Line route. In addition to the station at Venice/Robertson, the new stations are located on Flower at 23rd Street and Jefferson, and on Exposition Boulevard at USC/Expo Park, Vermont, Western, Crenshaw, La Brea, and La Cienega. The Expo Line is approximately 8.6 miles in length and parallels the heavily congested I-10 freeway. Estimated travel time from downtown Los Angeles to Culver City is under 30 minutes with an hourly projected ridership of 27,000 by 2020. The Expo Line project is considered a “Transit Parkway” that will be enhanced by bike and pedestrian paths, as well as trees and landscaping along the alignment.
