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.
