The West Santa Ana Branch (WSAB) Transit Corridor is a proposed 20-mile light rail line that will connect southeast corridor cities, including Paramount, to Union Station. With funding from Measure M, the project is anticipated to break ground by 2022. Stations are proposed at the I-105 Freeway, with a connection to the Green Line, and near the intersection of Paramount Boulevard and Rosecrans Avenue.
