Florence is an at grade light rail station on the Los Angeles County Metro Blue Line. [1]

It has an island platform on the Blue Line right-of-way alongside Graham Avenue near the intersection of Florence Avenue in the unincorporated community of Florence. Of all of the Metro Rail stations, this station has the smallest island platform width. The station's width is so small, passengers are forced to walk on the platforms when the station becomes crowded.

Florence is a park and ride station with 100 parking spaces.
