Union Station

Metro chief Arthur Leahy remembers entering a virtually abandoned Union Station as a young bus operator in the early '70s in search of a bathroom. Today, Union Station is buzzing with commuters from the Gold, Red and Purple lines, MetroLink, Amtrak, Flyaway to LAX and the bus routes through Patsaouras Transit Plaza.<br><br>
 
Located between Chinatown and downtown near where the city was founded, the potential for transit-oriented development is being carefully considered so that Union Station can be maximized. The hope is that Union Station will be a world-class historic facility around which development can occur and thrive.  Every new and existing business, housing unit and civic space in the area can benefit from Union Station.
