The Whittier line was a line on the Pacific Electric Railway that operated between 1904 and 1935. The line served Downtown Los Angeles and Whittier via Huntington Park, Rivera, and Los Nietos. Due to its roundabout route, the line quickly lost out to bus and automobile service along Whittier Boulevard.
