Metro is now conducting a feasibility study to evaluate a number of high-capacity transit alternatives between the San Fernando Valley and Westside. The Sepulveda Corridor is one of Southern California’s most congested transportation corridors, with more than 400,000 people traveling through the project study area every day.
The feasibility study is divided into two areas: A Valley-Westside segment and a Westside-LAX segment. Further refined concepts for both segments will be presented at these meetings.
The community meetings will be held on the following dates:
- Wednesday, July 24, 2019, 6 p.m.–8 p.m., Proud Bird Restaurant, 11022 Aviation Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90045. Presentation at 6:30 p.m.
- Saturday, July 27, 2019, 10 a.m.–12 p.m., Veterans Memorial Building, 4117 Overland Av Culver City, CA 90230. Presentation at 10:30 a.m.
- Tuesday, July 30, 2019, 6 p.m.–8 p.m., St. Paul the Apostle Church, 10750 Ohio Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90024. Presentation at 6:30 p.m.
- Saturday, August 3, 2019, 10 a.m.–1 p.m. Marvin Braude Constituent Service Center, 6262 Van Nuys Boulevard, Van Nuys, CA 91401. This will be a bilingual meeting; English presentation at 10:30 a.m.; Spanish presentation at 11:45 a.m. Light lunch will be served.

All Metro meetings are held in ADA accessible facilities. Spanish translation will be provided. Other ADA accommodations and translations are available by calling 323-466-3876 or the California Relay Service at 711 at least 72 hours in advance.
The feasibility study, which began in December 2017, will conclude this fall. The study’s findings will be the basis for formal environmental studies, which will begin next year.
The project is largely funded by Measure M, the transportation sales tax approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2016. The total project will receive $9.5 billion in sales tax funding. The first phase between the Valley and the Westside scheduled to open in 2033. The project may be expedited through a public-private partnership.
