Los Angeles transit authority prepares station openings along new Metro Expo Line

On June 20, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) officially will open to the public the Culver City and Farmdale stations along the recently opened Metro Expo Line.

“The opening of the Culver City and Farmdale stations completes the first phase of the Expo Line, connecting Angelenos from the Westside to downtown and beyond,” said L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa in a prepared statement.

Phase I of the Metro Expo Line is a new $932 million, 8.6-mile light-rail line from downtown L.A. to Culver City. It has 12 stations, with two shared with the Metro Blue Line. Slated for completion in 2016, the Metro Expo Line’s second phase will be a $1.5 billion, 6.6-mile extension from Culver City to Santa Monica.
