Three LACMTA subway stations renamed

Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Board of Directors approved the name changes of three subway stations.

The Red Line Civic Center Station will now be the "Civic Center/Grand Park/Tom Bradley Station" in honor of the recently opened Grand Park, which is served by this station and the former Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley.

The Red Line Universal City Station will now be known as "Universal City/Studio City Station" to reflect the station's location in Studio City.

The Purple Line Wilshire/Western Station will now be known as the "Wilshire/Western/Alfred Hoyun Song Station" in honor of Alfred Hoyun Song, former mayor of Monterey Park and the first Asian American legislator elected to the California State Assembly in 1962.
