Elevated Station

This view is from about a block away from the Chinatown station, looking up Spring St.  Chinatown is the first stop north of downtown, and is the most prominent elevated station anywhere along the route.  The station is stereotypically and colorfully done to highlight the character and culture of the area.  The line is elevated over several busy blocks through this area.

The Gold Line, like the other area light rail routes, and the two subway lines, and an extensive -- almost dizzying -- number of local and express bus lines, is part of the operations of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority.  That agency serves the most populous county in the country, with 1433 square miles within its territory.
