LA Station Restrictions Set for Academy Awards Show

Amtrak passengers will see some changes at Los Angeles Union Station over the next few weeks.

The main entrance from Alemeda Street has been closed in preparation for using a portion of the station as a host site for the Academy Awards ceremony to be held April 25.

Access to the station for passengers and visitors will be through the Vignes Street entrance.

Also affected are the ticketing Hall, waiting room, and north and south patios.

The leather and walnut chairs of the waiting room have been moved to the center section of the passenger concourse.

Amtrak’s Metropolitan Lounge remains open and Los Angeles Metro says it anticipates no changes to transit service except for some bus reroutes in the Union Station area.

Thruway buses will be relocated from the station bus bays to the area known as the Greyhound bus stop at the west end of the station in front of the Metropolitan Water District.

The buses will operate from the second floor of the station, near parking lot D.

Thruway bus passengers are being advised to gather in the waiting lobby to be led to their bus.

The changes will remain in place through April 27 with additional significant restrictions being imposed April 24-25.

The station is one of two sites that will host the 93rd Academy Awards.
