Metro is working on expanding rail service through Mid City, WeHo, and Hollywood. Depending on the route selected, WeHo could be served by up to four new underground stations, and this is one of them! Click through the sample trips below to see where Metro rail could take you or scroll down to explore more stations. (Travel times are estimated based on the Fairfax-San Vicente Hybrid Route and will vary with Metro’s final design.)

The Santa Monica/Fairfax station would serve the central part of West Hollywood home to the densest multi family neighborhoods in WeHo and a variety of neighborhoods serving retail on Santa Monica Blvd. and Fairfax Ave.–many of which occupy unique historic buildings. Already home to some of the busiest bus stops in WeHo, this area will likely remain a major transfer location with future rail service and onward connections via Metro bus services on Fairfax Ave with service to Mid City, Hollywood, Los Feliz, and the San Fernando Valley. Fairfax High School (home to the popular Melrose Trading Post) and trendy shops and businesses along Melrose Ave. are less than half a mile south and buffered bike lanes on Fairfax Ave. make it easy to get there on two wheels if you prefer not to walk. Other community amenities within a block or two include a U.S. Post Office and several smaller schools including the West Hollywood Opportunity Center, Laurel Span School, and Larchmont Charter School Fairfax.

The Funding Plan

We heard you! West Hollywood residents overwhelmingly support bringing Metro rail to WeHo but Metro’s funding is too limited to finish the line and it isn’t available until 2041. We’re working on a plan to close the funding gap and build Crenshaw North decades ahead of schedule—without raising taxes. Click on the link below to find out more.

Which Route Do You Prefer?

Metro is currently studying which of the three remaining alternative routes the project should take. The La Cienega/Beverly and Santa Monica/San Vicente stations would only be included in the project if Metro selects the Fairfax-San Vicente Hybrid route. The Santa Monica/Fairfax station would only be included if Metro selects the San Vicente Hybrid or Fairfax routes. If you want Metro to include these stations, please email them at or sign up for the West Hollywood Advocates for Metro Rail mailing list below to be notified about upcoming opportunities to weigh in during Metro’s process!
