Los Angeles Union Station was the last great train station built in the United States. Intended as a grand portal to a grand Los Angeles, it was an anomaly, built at a time when America was eager to drive or fly to its chosen destinations. And yet, Union Station survived and became a symbol of its city.
Protected by early inclusion on the National Registry of Historic Places for its iconic architecture, Los Angeles Union Station has had an astonishing and unpredictable rebirth. As the city modernizes its public transportation system linking the culturally and geographically diverse communities of Southern California, Union Station is suddenly the hub of the country's newest light rail and subway system, serving hundreds of thousands of people each week.
Where Pullman cars and Harvey Girls once served commuters, where the Super Chief and the Coast Starlight, Streamliners, and Domeliners converged, Los Angeles Union Station is now a living-breathing center of transportation modernity.
