The Metro Orange Line Extension extends four miles north from Canoga Station to the Chatsworth Amtrak/Metrolink Station. This dedicated busway offers improvements to north-south mobility in the western San Fernando Valley by connecting activity centers along the corridor and connecting the Metro Orange Line with AmtrakMetrolink.

The construction of the Metro Orange Line Extension offers faster travel times, improved bus connections, and provides better access to destinations throughout LA County.

Metro Orange Line Extension features include:

  • A four-mile northern extension of the Metro Orange Line, extending from the Canoga Station to the Chatsworth Amtrak/Metrolink Station
  • Four new stations located at Sherman Way, Roscoe Bl., Nordhoff St., and the Chatsworth Amtrak/Metrolink Station. New platforms added at Canoga Station
  • New bikeway and pedestrian path that runs parallel to the dedicated busway
  • Landscaping similar to that on the existing Metro Orange Line
  • New park and ride lot at Sherman Way Station
  • Additional parking at Chatsworth Station
  • Overcrossing of Lassen St. and the railroad tracks on an elevated bridge
  • All stations include public art
  • Now Open
