Aviation/LAX station is an elevated light rail station on the C Line of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. It is located over Aviation Boulevard, after which the station is named, near its intersection with Imperial Highway and just south of Century Freeway in Los Angeles, California.
A free LAX Shuttle bus connects this station to Los Angeles International Airport; however, when the K Line fully opens in 2024, this shuttle will be replaced by the LAX Automated People Mover which will connect with LAX/Metro Transit Center station, and this station will then be renamed Aviation/Imperial station. The original name was Aviation Blvd/I-105 station but was later simplified and its location close to LAX clarified, with a change to Aviation/LAX.
The train platform, currently suitable for two-car trains, are planned to be lengthened by 2028 to accommodate three-car trains to enable increased capacity of the line.
