Westside Subway Extension gets a new official name: Purple Line Extension

The re-branding has been in the works for a while and the project has, at times, been referred to by both names. The project extends the subway from its current terminus at Wilshire and Western to a station at the VA Hospital in Westwood.

Why wasn’t it just called “Purple Line Extension” from the get-go? The short answer: the project wasn’t officially a subway until the environmental studies were complete.

Here are the new addresses:

  1. Andre,
    A Crenshaw/ Wilshire stop (or one nearby) might have to wait until the Crenshaw Line is extended to the purple Line.
