Location

Westchester/Veterans station is an at-grade light rail station on the K Line of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. It is located alongside Florence Avenue near its intersection of Hindry Avenue, located in the Westchester neighborhood of Los Angeles, but very close to the city of Inglewood.

It is currently under construction and is slated to open in 2022. The station will serve as the initial southern terminus of the line until through-routing with the C Line commences.[1]

The station incorporates artwork by the artist Geoff McFetridge.[2] Hindry station was funded and fully incorporated into the project in May 2013 after significant community support.[3]
