Venice Short Line was a suburban line operated by the Pacific Electric Railway in California, USA. It was built and operated by the Los Angeles Pacific Railroad. On March 19, 1906, an agreement was reached to sell all the Los Angeles Pacific Railroad lines for $6 million to Henry E. Huntington’s Pacific Electric Railway.

The Venice Short Line traveled from downtown Los Angeles to Venice also to Ocean Park, and Santa Monica via Venice Boulevard.
