Airport Metro Connector/96th Street Transit Station*

Los Angeles, California

Gruen/Grimshaw, working closely with Metro staff, is leading a 19-firm team to design a multi-modal transportation facility near the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The station will provide connections between the future Automated People Mover and light rail, shuttles, regional bus service, and a Metro bike hub. LAX, with over 70 million annual passengers and several million more anticipated within the next 20 years, will rely on this critical hub within Metro’s regional transportation system to alleviate congestion. The project area is approximately 9.5 acres. Key features of the project includes:

  • Identify Existing Conditions
  • Existing Policy Assessment
  • Best Practices Review
  • Community Outreach
  • Plan Preparation, from Conceptual Design to Construction Documents
  • Development of Final Design and Recommendations

* Gruen Associates is the Executive Architect in association with the Design Architect.
