Union Station Master Plan Project Update

After purchasing Union Station last year, Metro is making plans to upgrade the station to a world class transit facility. The property surrounding Union Station is permitted to have up to 6 million square feet of development – and the Master Plan will create a careful blueprint for growth that honors the rich history of surrounding communities.

The Master Plan will also identify upgrades to accommodate growing transit use and improve passenger experience. The project team’s initial data collection has identified a need for better connectivity between Union Station and neighboring areas.  In response, Metro has partnered with the Southern California Association of Governments to prepare a pedestrian and bicycle Linkages Study in close coordination with the Master Plan.

We invite your input in the planning process – and hope that you can join us to learn more and provide comments at an upcoming community meeting:
