The Soto Metro Station in Boyle Heights

Jan 31, 2011 by Lisa Newton

At the corner of 1st and Soto Street in Boyle Heights is where the Soto Metro Station is located.

Indeed, from the first moment I lied my eyes upon it, I silently said to myself, “What’s that?”

The Soto Metro Station in Boyle Height first opened in 2009 as part of the Gold Line Eastside Extension, and the Soto Station is one of only two underground stations on the Gold Line–the other one is the Mariachi Plaza.

One of the advantages of the Soto Station is that it’s also a stop for several other Metro bus lines; including the Metro Local 30, 251, 252, and the 605. And also the Metro Rapid 751.

If you’re riding your bike to get to the station, the Soto Metro Station has parking for at least twelve bikes and four bike lockers.

Be sure to purchase your ticket, or have a Tap pass, because this station functions with fare gates only.

The architectural design of the Soto Station is very fascinating; so here’s a few photographs I took of the station a couple of days ago:

One level down, and you’ve arrived at the trains:

From here, you can either head to Union Station, and head to Pasadena, or go East.
