Blue Line

Washington is an at-grade light rail station on the Los Angeles County Metro Blue Line. [1]

It has an island platform in the center median of Long Beach Avenue south of the intersection with the station's namesake, Washington Boulevard in South Los Angeles, California.

At this station, the Blue Line changes from the roughly northwest-to-southeast direction down the center of Washington Boulevard to the north-south direction down the center media of Long Beach Avenue.

Under current plans, the station will also be served by the West Santa Ana Branch Transit Corridor, one of the Twenty-eight by '28 projects Metro aims to have online by the 2028 Summer Olympics. The West Santa Ana Branch line will separate from the current Blue Line after this station, heading downtown by a more direct route. [2]
