New Bus Rapid Transit Line Proposed for L.A.'s San Fernando Valley
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. The route would run parallel to the existing Orange Line BRT along much of the route, and when connected to the planned East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor project, Metro would cover all four corners of the San Fernando Valley.
