Expo/Bundy is an elevated light rail station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system. It is located at the intersection of Bundy Drive and Exposition Boulevard in West Los Angeles, California. It serves the Expo Line.[2]

This station is in West Los Angeles, on an elevated structure spanning Bundy Drive, just south of Olympic Boulevard. The area is a busy commercial center, with heavy traffic on nearby boulevards partly due to the two major freeways nearby. Directly to the west (across Centinela) is the proposed site of the Expo Vehicle Maintenance Facility.

The elevated station structure stands 30 feet above Bundy Drive. To the east, the track descends a retained fill embankment before crossing Barrington Avenue. To the west, the track descends a retained fill embankment after crossing Centinela Avenue.

Parking is located at-grade in the right-of-way near the station.[3]
