The at-quality transit hub will involve:

  • a 16-bay bus plaza with potential for charging infrastructure
  • a multi-stage lively transportation and bike hub
  • a car or truck drop-off zone
  • a shopper service center
  • public bathroom amenities past the fare paid out zone

Building of station, which expected to open in 2024, has delayed the debut of the final leg of Metro’s K Line. Whilst passenger services commenced amongst Westchester/Veterans Station and Expo/Crenshaw Station in October, trains are unable to go by the new LAX quit to reach supplemental K Line stations to the south. However, Metro is protecting entry to the adjacent rail maintenance and storage facility all through design.
