Previous names 7th Street/Metro Center/Julian Dixon

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 7th 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 bus rapid transit Silver Line. The Blue Line and Expo Line currently have their downtown terminus at this station. Many bus routes also serve the station.

This is one of only two stations in the entire system that has an underground side platform, the other being the Wilshire/Vermont station.

Station layout

The station consists of three underground levels. The main concourse and the light rail side platforms are on the second underground level, while the heavy rail center platform is on the third level. A small first level mezzanine connects the light rail side platforms. The Metro Silver Line stops at the street level next to the station's entrances. The station has direct access to The Bloc Shopping Mall (formerly known as Macy's Plaza) with a pedestrian friendly direct entrance from the mall to the subway station.

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.[2]
