Main Street is a major north-south thoroughfare in Los Angeles, California, and is the east-west postal divider for that city. It begins as a continuation of Valley Boulevard west of Mission Road in Lincoln Heights and 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. On entrance to Wilmington, Main Street continues as Wilmington Boulevard, ending at Harry Bridges Boulevard. [1] Many of the City's historical buildings are located on Main Street.


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.
