Main Street is a major north-south thoroughfare in Los Angeles, California. It serves as the east-west postal divider for the city and the county as well.[1]


It begins as a continuation of Valley Boulevard west of Mission Road in Lincoln Heights as 'North Main Street'. It ends at the Port of Los Angeles. At 9th Street, it merges with Spring Street in Downtown LA, and between Cesar E. Chavez Avenue and 9th Street, Main Street shares a one-way couplet with Spring Street.

Main Street begins as a continuation of Wilmington Boulevard, a small street in the neighborhood of Wilmington, Los Angeles. Nearly 2 miles north at the intersection of Lomita Boulevard, it officially becomes Main Street and enters into the city of Carson.


Main Street carries Metro Local lines 10, 33, 48, 55, 68, 76, 83, 92, and 355, as well as Metro Rapid line 733; most of those lines run on Main Street in downtown only, while Line 76 serves Main Street in Northeast Los Angeles and Line 48 in South Los Angeles.
