Metro Expo Line Simplified - Santa Monica - Culver City - Downtown LA
FIND THE LOCATION OF ALL METRO EXPO LIGHT RAIL STATIONS, ROUTE MAPS, SCHEDULES, PARKING INFO, COST DETAILS & MORE RIGHT HERE. I FOUND THE METRO WEBSITE CONFUSING AND HARD TO NAVIGATE, SO I DECIDED TO SIMPLIFY EVERYTHING RIGHT HERE IN THIS EASY-TO-READ ARTICLE.
METRO EXPO LINE LIGHT RAIL SERVICE CONNECTS SANTA MONICA TO DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES & BEYOND.
THE MAIN PHOTO AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE SHOWS YOU THE LOCATIONS OF ALL METRO EXPO LINE STATIONS BUT DOES NOT SHOW THE ADDRESSES, SO DIRECTLY BELOW IS THE LINK FOR THAT.
IS YOUR DESTINATION OUTSIDE THE METRO EXPO LINE AREA?
**Be aware that Metro changes schedule times twice per year, in June & December**
Metro’s regular fare is $1.75, which includes two hours of unlimited transfers in one direction. A TAP card costs $2 + fare and can be purchased from vending machines at all Metro Rail stations, or you can add the TAP app to your smartphone.
All Metro fares are here. You can purchase a TAP card online and/or apply online for discounted fares for seniors, disabled/Medicare recipients, students, and low-income households. The off-peak fare for seniors is 35 cents for those who ride between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and 7 p.m.-5 a.m.
The 7th Street/Metro Center station is the most eastern stop on the Expo Line. When leaving that location, be aware that there are two trains that use the same tracks. So when heading back home, make sure you get on the Expo train headed toward Santa Monica and not the Blue Line train headed to Long Beach!
