The $267-million, 18-mile project aims to build a high-quality Bus Rapid Transit line that will connect the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys, traveling east-west between the North Hollywood Metro B (Red)/G (Orange) Line Station and Pasadena City College with stops in downtown Burbank, Glendale and Eagle Rock, depending on the route option.
The project is funded by the Measure M sales tax measure approved by L.A. County voters in 2016, along with SB 1 gas tax and vehicle fees, and is scheduled to open by 2024. It aims to meet priorities set out in Metro’s Vision 2028 strategic plan to offer high-quality mobility options and outstanding trip experiences, while enhancing communities and lives.
Metro received nearly 500 comments during the public review period after the release of the Draft Environmental Impact Report in October and continues to analyze and refine the project.
