New Bus Rapid Transit Route Takes Shape for the San Fernando Valley
The proposed alignment of a new bus rapid transit line in the San Fernando Valley is under consideration by the Planning and Programming Committee of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Board of Directors, according to an article by Steven Sharp.
"The project corridor extends approximately 20 miles, spanning between the Chatsworth Metrolink Station in the west and Metro's North Hollywood Station in the east. The proposed alignment would connect several regional destinations in the San Fernando Valley - including Cal State Northridge - but also other transit services including local bus lines, the Orange Line, Metrolink, and the forthcoming light rail line on Van Nuys Boulevard," writes Sharp.
The currently proposed alignment was chosen from three final options, which had been chosen from a total of seven conceptual routes earlier in the planning process.
Sharp provides more detail on the proposed route, referred to as the North Valley Bus Rapid Transit Line.
