Pico is an at-grade light rail station in the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. It is located in the South Park neighborhood of Downtown Los Angeles, on Flower Street and Pico Boulevard. The station is served by the Metro A Line (Blue) and the Metro E Line (Expo). The Metro J Line (Silver) buses heading northbound to El Monte Station stop one block west of the station at Figueroa St./Pico Blvd. Southbound Silver Line buses heading to Harbor Gateway Transit Center stop at Flower St./Pico Blvd.

The full (official) station name is Pico/Chick Hearn. This name memorializes sportscaster Francis Dayle "Chick" Hearn (1916–2002), longtime play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Lakers. On April 13, 2016, the station was temporarily renamed "Kobe" to commemorate professional basketball player Kobe Bryant's last game.[1] Since then, the station is listed on Metro maps as "Pico Station" only.
