Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal is northeast of downtown, across from Olvera Street, where Los Angeles was founded in the 18th Century. It was originally designed to consolidate the passenger operations of three railroads: the Southern Pacific; the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe; and Union Pacific. Many connections can be made here including Metrolink Commuter Rail to many of the LA suburbs. Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner trains serve San Diego, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo. Other long distance connections include the Coast Starlight to Seattle, and the Southwest Chief to Chicago.

Did you know...
Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Angeles, now known simply as Los Angeles, was founded 12 years after Fr. Junipero Serra set out in 1769 to establish a chain of missions stretching up the coast of California. Los Angeles Union Station sits astride the route connecting the missions: El Camino Real, the "Royal Road." Designed in the traditional California mission style, Union Station was built in 1939 to replace two separate terminals operated by the Union Pacific, Southern Pacific and Santa Fe Railroads. The station is a fitting blend of Spanish and Art Deco styles reflecting both Los Angeles' earliest heritage and the modernistic tradition that helped transform the area into the megalopolis we see today. Across from the station is Olvera Street, a colorful historic district that marks the site of the original village on the Los Angeles River.
