The Green Line (D), a light railway/tram that is part of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority's Metro Rail subway system, conveniently runs through El Segundo with service in the heart of the city's busiest commercial sector. The Aviation/I-105 station provides free shuttle to and from Los Angeles International airport.
Between Norwalk and Aviation, this line runs for about 17 miles along the median (central reservation) of the Glenn Anderson (Century) Freeway (I-105). The line passes through Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Lennox, Inglewood, Watts, Lynwood, Downey and Norwalk.
In September 2011, Metro certified the final EIR for the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor Project, an 8.5-mile light rail line funded by Measure R dollars that will connect downtown Los Angeles and the Westside with the South Bay and LAX area, including El Segundo, while adding thousands of jobs to the region. The new line, set to begin construction in 2012 with a completion date of 2018, will connect the Expo Line to the Green Line with six stations.
Metro is also conducting an environmental review to examine options to extend rail service into the South Bay as an alternative to the 405 freeway. The South Bay Metro Green Line Extension would connect to the Blue Line and the new Crenshaw Line. The study area includes about 30 square miles and includes El Segundo and other Beach Cities down to Torrance.
