The Metro Purple Line is a subway line that currently consists of eight stations, beginning at Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles and terminating at the Wilshire/Western Station in Koreatown. The Purple Line Extension will extend the line west, adding seven new stations through Miracle Mile, Beverly Hills, Century City, Westwood, and West Los Angeles. With trains running every 10 minutes, the completed Purple Line Extension will be the fastest and easiest way to get to UCLA from downtown Los Angeles. Similar to the Exposition Line, this line will become a critical east-west connection in the city.
