When the Metropolitan Transportation Authority reached out to the public for input on a master plan for Union Station, one of the chief complaints was that it was easy to get lost in the transit hub.

To relieve the confusion, Metro began work on March 11 to streamline signage and add navigation aids around Union Station.

The historic “waiting room” will get two large wall-mounted LED signs for arrival/departure info for both Amtrak and Metrolink lines. At the east entrance to the station, Metro will install a large pylon with four touchscreens to help travelers with trip planning. Other improvements include installing identifying pylons around the perimeter of Union Station, new signage at Patsaouras Bus Plaza and standardized naming for the station’s different areas.

The signage updates will be complete by May 3, when Metro begins its celebration of the 75th anniversary of Union Station. Full details and renderings can be found at The Source, Metro's official outlet for news.
