Mile Marker 0.0

Mile 0.0 shows its marker at this scene from center platform at Union Station.  The train in view is out of service.  In late 2009 the route was extended beyond here to reach East Los Angeles by way of Little Tokyo/Arts District, a crossing of the Los Angeles River along 1st St., and twin 1.8 mile tunnels under Boyle Heights, with two underground stations. 

Planning is underway to evaluate options for continuing that line further east to other communities in Los Angeles County.  No specific route has yet been determined.
