From Chinatown’s Metro Gold Line Station, get to and from anywhere in LA’s transit network and beyond. Using LA Metro’s existing rail system, it’s quick and easy to walk to the Chinatown station or LA’s historic Union Station and heard toward Pasadena, Long Beach, Hollywood, Koreatown, Culver City and, come 2015, Santa Monica. From Union Station also access LA Metros expansive bus system and Southern California’s Metrolink rail sytem, traveling to various cities in Orange County, San Bernardino County, Ventura County and Riverside County.
Over the next few years, Metro’s transit system will continue to make the region more interconnected with the extension of lines like the Purple Line to UCLA and Gold Line to Claremont and Montclair in eastern Los Angeles County.
