Regional Connector Community Update Meetings

Metro Regional Connector Light Rail Transit Project
Community Update Meetings

Metro is currently completing advanced conceptual engineering for the Regional Connector, a 1.9-mile underground alignment that will connect the Metro Blue, Expo, and Gold Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) lines in Downtown Los Angeles. The Regional Connector will improve transit access for the anticipated 88,000+ riders who would use the system daily. The project includes underground tracks linking three new stations, located at 2nd/Hope, 2nd/Broadway, and 1st/Central.

You are encouraged to attend one of the upcoming community updates; content at each meeting will be identical.  Metro will present the status of the project, including next steps as well as station design for each new station.

Spanish, Korean, and Japanese translation services will be provided at all meetings.
