Yesterday, Metro released a draft environmental impact report detailing plans for the long-sought light rail link to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

The proposed Aviation/96th Street Station, slated for an approximately 9.5-acre site one mile east of LAX, would be a multi-modal transportation center featuring:

  • Three at-grade light rail platforms served by the Green and Crenshaw/LAX Lines.
  • A bus plaza featuring 20 active bus bays and up to 18 layover bays.
  • A bicycle hub with featuring long-term accommodations for up to 150 bicycles and short-term parking for 50 bicycles, as well as a repair area, showers and lockers.
  • A passenger pick-up and drop-off area for access to the bus and rail lines serving the station.
  • A Metro hub to connect passengers between the various modes of transportation.

In a separate project, Los Angeles World Airports is in the planning stages for a 2.25-mile automated people mover system which would connect Aviation/96th Street Station to the LAX central terminal area, as well as two separate ground tranpsortation hubs and a consolidated rental car facility.

The multi-modal station could be completed as soon as 2021 under the expenditure plan of a potential ballot measure that would use raise the Los Angeles County sales tax to fund numerous rail, bus and infrastructure projects planned by Metro.
