Phase One of Metro's Expo Line is complete Wednesday with the opening of two new the light rail stops along the Downtown LA-Westside corridor. 

Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky celebrated the new additions, telling KPCC's Ashley Bailey that, "We are not promising to reduce congestion, but what we are promising is we’ll give people an alternative to being stuck in traffic."

"This line will give people in the Crenshaw district, in the Exposition Park area, in the Culver City/Cheviot Hills area, the alternative to use public transportation, which will get them from point A to point B faster than they can in their car," he added.

The Farmdale Station is located on Exposition Boulevard and the Culver City stop is located at the intersection of Washington and National.
