South Pasadena (formerly Mission) is an at-grade light rail station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system. It is located at the intersection of Mission Street and Meridian Avenue in South Pasadena, California. The station is served by the Gold Line.[1]

This station features the adjacent station art sculpture "Astride-Aside" (2003) by artist Michael Stutz. The station has a 122 space park and ride lot and there is a fee to park.

Formerly serving the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad, the original depot building was torn down in 1954 with the station's closure.[2][3] The current structure was built with the reactivation of the line as a light rail station in 2003.
