Study area and potential alignment concepts for the North San Fernando Valley BRT Line.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is taking public feedback on a plan to add an east-west bus rapid transit route in the San Fernando Valley.

"The project, which could run as far as 20 miles end-to-end, would connect with destinations like Cal State Northridge and connect with other transit lines including the Orange Line, Metrolink, and the planned light rail line along Van Nuys Boulevard," reports Steven Sharp.

Metro has drafted three alternative routes, and plans to complete the project by 2025.
