7th Street/Metro Center, officially 7th Street/Metro Center/Julian Dixon, is a metro station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system located in the Financial District of Downtown Los Angeles at the intersection of Seventh Street and Flower Street.[1]

The station is served by the light rail Blue Line and Expo Line, heavy rail Red Line and Purple Line, and by the Silver Line (bus rapid transit). The Blue Line and Expo Line currently have their downtown terminus at this station. Many bus routes also serve the station.


The station consists of two underground levels (one light rail and one heavy rail). The Metro Silver Line stops at the street level next to the station's entrance.


Metro Rail and BRT service

Blue, Expo, Red and Purple Line service hours are approximately from 5:00 AM until 12:45 AM daily.[2][3]
Silver Line service hours are approximately from 5:00 AM until 1:00 AM daily.[4]

Transstate service

  • The California Shuttle Bus operates to San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose.

Station enhancements

Metro spent nearly $2 million worth of enhancements to 7th Street/Metro Center station as part of the Expo Line project which was completed weeks before the Metro Expo Line began service to La Cienega/Jefferson Station. This enhancement included a new dispatch booth and improved signage in the station.[5]

Regional connector

Main article: Regional Connector (Los Angeles Metro)

The proposed Regional Connector would result in the Blue Line and Expo Line continuing north from this station through Downtown Los Angeles (via the Financial District and the Bunker Hill area) to connect with the Little Tokyo/Arts District Station on the Gold Line.
