Willow Street is an at grade light rail station on the Los Angeles County Metro Blue Line. It has an island platform, and is adjacent to Long Beach Boulevard near the intersection of Willow Street in the city of Long Beach, California. At this point, going Northbound, the Blue Line route leaves Long Beach Boulevard and enters its own right-of-way (part of Pacific Electric Railway's Red Car right-of-way) allowing the trains to reach higher speeds between stops. Willow is a park and ride station with 920 parking spaces (including a multi-story parking facility) and 10 bike lockers.
The Willow Street and Wardlow stations, both in Wrigley, are the two Blue Line stations closest to the Long Beach Municipal Airport.
The station is on the site of a junction on the Pacific Electric Railway, where the Balboa line split from the Long Beach line. At various times, the junction was referred to as Willow, Willows, Willowville and North Long Beach.
