Los Angeles Metro Approves Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 Route

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) Board has approved the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) for the Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 Project, which will extend the Metro L light rail line from East Los Angeles to Whittier.

The chosen route will extend the Metro L Line further east from its current terminus at Pomona/Atlantic in East Los Angeles to Greenwood Station in Montebello.

The Board has also approved the construction of Lambert Station in Whittier as the terminus for the nine-mile project.

Metro can now complete the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) so that the project is ready for construction by 2029.

Once constructed, the new line will serve the cities of Commerce, Montebello, Pico Rivera, Santa Fe Springs and Whittier to offer improved transportation to commuters in this high-demand corridor.

In addition, the route will provide a connection to the regional transit network via the Regional Connector, a new Metro rail extension that is due to open in downtown Los Angeles in spring 2023.
