Location

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 El Segundo, California.

A free LAX Shuttle bus connects this station to Los Angeles International Airport, however, when the K Line opens in 2023, this shuttle will instead serve the new Aviation/Century station, which is closer to the airport terminals,[4] and the current Aviation/LAX 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, may be lengthened in the future to accommodate three-car trains to enable increased capacity of the line.[5]
