LA Metro's Regional Connector

Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has officially opened the Regional Connector transit project.

This offers two new routes from Azusa to Long Beach, and from East Los Angeles to Santa Monica. The Regional Connector provides a seamless journey across LA County and adds three new underground stations.

Little Tokyo/Arts District Station gives easy access to historically rich and vibrant neighbourhoods and cultural institutions.

Historic Broadway Station features two nationally registered districts - the Broadway Theater District, with 12 original theatres within seven blocks, and Old Spring Street, known as the original financial district of Downtown Los Angeles.

Grand Avenue Arts/Bunker Hill Station connects riders to downtown’s performing arts institutions, museums, fine dining experiences and more.

The completion of the project improves connections by bringing together the Metro L (Gold), A (Blue), E (Expo), B (Red) and D (Purple) lines at the 7th Street/Metro Center Station.
