Pico/Aliso is a poorly designed Gold Line station. The station is a grade-level station in the middle of East 1 Street, the platform has two canopies with brown support beams holding them up and sculptures of faces from About Place About Face by Rob Neilson. There is a single legal entrance at the eastern end of the platform. This consists of a ramp up to some TVMs beneath their own canopy before the platform entrance from the crosswalk of the intersection of Utah Street. The western end of the platform is right at the crosswalk of the intersection with Anderson Street but there is just an emergency exit staircase blocked by a gate. This should be a simple secondary entrance. A few blocks west of the station the gold line crosses over the Los Angeles River on bridge in the median of 1 Street with the main line used by Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner to San Diego and Metrolink on one side and the Division 20, Downtown Los Angeles Train Yard used by the Red Line Subway.
