HistoryEdit

In 2013, an environmental study was conducted as a prerequisite before construction could begin.[4] Groundbreaking for the station was held on June 21, 2013.[5] A metro.net factsheet dated April 2, 2015, said that construction was scheduled to begin in July 2015 with operations in April 2016.[6] By March 2017, construction had begun on the station.[7] Revenue service began May 14, 2018.[1]

A planned California High Speed Rail station will be located adjacent to the station. That service will operate between Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC), and the Transbay Transit Center in San Francisco.[8]
