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/San Vicente station would serve the heart of West Hollywood with easy access to community amenities like West Hollywood Park, the City Council Chambers, and West Hollywood Library as well as the historic LGBTQ nightlife and entertainment district along Santa Monica Boulevard. This part of WeHo has served as the epicenter of major civic and regional events for decades from annual Pride and Halloween festivities to recent protests and marches and the first ever CicLAvia “Meet the Hollywoods” Open Streets Festival . Major job centers nearby include the West Hollywood Design District and Pacific Design Center as well as shops, restaurants, and hotels along the Boulevard and on the iconic Sunset Strip nearby. 

This area is already vibrant and walkable with lots of community serving shops and restaurants, but several major projects are also in the works including Melrose Triangle and Robertson Lane. Public projects under construction include the new West Hollywood Aquatics and Recreation Center and a new AIDS Monument while several street safety and aesthetic upgrades are planned for Almont Dr., La Peer Dr., Robertson Blvd., and Melrose Ave.

Population Density (Per Sq. Mile)
Stations with higher population density would likely generate more riders. Note: all four proposed WeHo stations would be more dense than the Los Angeles County average (2,121 people per sq. mile).

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!
