Red Car Stations
Swinford St. ~ Cruise Center
The station is located along Harbor Blvd. at Swinford Street, almost directly below the Vincent Thomas Bridge. The station sits at the entrance to the World Cruise Center, the West Coast’s busiest cruise ship terminal. Adjacent to the Cruise Center is the terminal for the ferry operation to Catalina Island. Directly adjacent to the station platform is the spectacular Fanfare Fountain, and alongside the Cruise Terminal is the Cruise Ship Promenade and the S.S. Lane Victory, a lovingly restored WWII “Victory” cargo ship open to the public as a museum and still used for occasional cruises. It’s a short walk from the terminals to the Red Car Station, or passengers can use the free Red Car parking lot shuttle.
6th St. ~ Downtown San Pedro
The station is located along Harbor Blvd. at 6th Street, directly across from the Los Angeles Maritime Museum. Located in the former Municipal Ferry Terminal, it’s the largest maritime museum on the West Coast, offering seven galleries of exhibits exploring the maritime history of Southern California. Its also a short walk in historic downtown San Pedro, with both 6th and 7th streets offering a variety of shops and restaurants to enjoy.
An historic note: the new station is on essentially the same site as PE’s San Pedro depot, demolished in 1961.
Sampson Way ~ Ports O’ Call
The station is located along Sampson Way directly across from the Ports O’ Call Village. This New England-style seaside village encompasses fifteen acres of shops, restaurants and attractions, including sport fishing boats and harbor cruises.
