Blue Line

Vernon is an at-grade light rail station on the Los Angeles County Metro Blue Line. [1]

It has an island platform in the center media of Long Beach Avenue near the intersection of Vernon Avenue in South Los Angeles, a quarter of a mile from the border with Vernon.

Prior to the construction of the Blue Line, Vernon Avenue was an important junction on the lines of the Pacific Electric Railway. All lines from the Southern District, including the Long Beach, Watts, Whittier and San Pedro lines, stopped at Vernon Avenue, which was also a crossing with the Los Angeles Railway's V line.[2]

Under current plans, the station will also be served by the West Santa Ana Branch Transit Corridor, one of the Twenty-eight by '28 projects Metro aims to have online by the 2028 Summer Olympics.[3]
