The Culver City station is located in the City of Culver City, just outside the City of Los Angeles city limits, though much of the local neighborhood lies within the City of Los Angeles. The area closest to the station, along the north and south sides of Venice Boulevard, is comprised of a mix of light industrial and commercial uses, including a car dealership, auto repair shop, sign manufacturer, hardware store, various chain retail stores, and a large shopping center anchored by an Albertson’s grocery store. The neighborhood also includes multi-family homes directly north of Venice Boulevard, and single-family homes, which are largely north of the 10 Freeway. The historic Helms Bakery district is located just one block east of the station and includes restaurants, offices and various design & home furnishing stores. The historically significant Alexander Hamilton High School and downtown Culver City are both within a 15-minute walk from the station.
The Culver City station is also located along one of the City’s busiest bus corridors, Venice Boulevard, thus providing direct access to various bus services linking residents to downtown Los Angeles, Venice beach, downtown Santa Monica and UCLA.
The station area is located within the Palms-Mar Vista-Del Rey Community Plan area as well as a small portion of the West Adams-Baldwin Hills-Leimert New Community Plan area.
