Expo Line provides 1,512 free parking spaces at facilities serving three stations
Commuters who are gearing up to take the Expo Line to work and other destinations have options to park for free at parking facilities located at La Cienega Station (476 spaces), Culver City Station (586 spaces) opening this summer and at the Crenshaw Station, a leased facility owned and operated by the West Angeles Church of God in Christ which will provide 450 spaces Monday through Saturday.
“This new association between West Angeles Church and Metro provides the community with a convenient and familiar place to park and allows West Angeles the opportunity to, once again, serve the South Los Angeles area, as we have done for more than forty years,” said Pastor and Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. Metro reports.

Bike racks and bike lockers provide more than 75 spaces at the ten new stations serving the Expo Line.
For bicyclists the Expo Line also improves connectivity, providing a total of 5.9 miles of new bikeways that parallel the new rail line.
Bike lanes are available on Exposition Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard between Vermont Avenue and La Cienega Boulevard. A shared-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians has also been built at the La Cienega/Jefferson Station.
The bike facilities provide connections to the Ballona Creek Bike Path. To better integrate bicycling with transit, Metro has bike parking at all stations, and plans to remove seats on Expo trains for patrons with bicycles, luggage, strollers and wheelchairs. Phase II of Expo Line will include a parallel bike path to Santa Monica.
