More than just light rail, the Expo Line creates a transit parkway connecting Downtown Los Angeles and Downtown Santa Monica. Phase 2 will feature landscaping comprised primarily of native plants, with signature palm trees at the stations and ginkgo trees along the corridor that tie into the Phase 1 project.
Landscaping will be used to provide visual continuity along the corridor while highlighting the unique nature of each station and the surrounding neighborhoods. The parkway will primarily include plants that are native and drought tolerant, which require minimal maintenance.
