EXPO LIGHT RAIL LINE:

The Expo Light Rail Line extension from Culver City to Santa Monica is scheduled to start train-testing activities in Santa Monica next week and will continue for several months. Initially the trains will be pulled along the rail corridor, and then operated on their own power. Testing will be ongoing along the entire alignment in Los Angeles and Santa Monica. The testing activity will test train clearances, the Overhead Catenary System which powers the trains, the crossing gates and traffic signals, and all related systems before the project is turned over to Metro for pre-revenue operations.

Safety Tips:

Please obey all warning signs and traffic signals when crossing the tracks. Always look both ways before crossing any street. Never walk on railroad tracks. Watch for trains from both directions. Use the crosswalks. Do not jaywalk across the tracks.
