L.A. METRO TO HOLD SEPTEMBER COMMUNITY MEETINGS FOR NEW NORTH SAN FERNANDO VALLEY BUS RAPID TRANSIT PROJECT

Monday September 10, 2018

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) invites the public to a series of community meetings for the North San Fernando Valley Bus Rapid Transit Project in September. Interested members of the public can learn about the project and provide input into the project’s current planning and environmental study.

The $180-million project is funded by the Measure M half-cent sales tax approved by voters in 2016. Metro will build a high-quality Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line in the North Valley that will connect major activity centers, employment sites, education, and regional transit connections.

Content will be the same at all meetings:

  • Thursday, September 20, 2018, 6 – 8 p.m., Congregational Church of Northridge, 9659 Balboa Boulevard, Northridge, CA  91325
  • Saturday, September 22, 2018, 10 a.m.  – 12 p.m., Sepulveda Recreation Center, 8825 Kester Avenue, Panorama City, CA  91402
  • Wednesday, September 26, 2018, 6 – 8 p.m., Our Community Charter School 10045 Jumilla Avenue, Chatsworth, CA  91311
  • Thursday, September 27, 2018, 6 – 8 p.m., San Fernando Aquatic Center - Banquet Hall, 300 Park Avenue, San Fernando, CA  91340
  • Saturday, September 29, 2018, 10 a.m. – noon, East Valley High School Auditorium, 5525 Vineland Avenue, North Hollywood, CA 91601

All Metro meetings are held in ADA accessible facilities and are accessible by transit. Spanish translation will be provided. ADA accommodations and other translations are available by calling 323.466.3876 or California Relay Service at 711 at least 72 hours in advance.

Metro is now evaluating potential BRT alignments and station locations through an Alternatives Analysis process and is collaborating with cities where the project may be located. Once the Alternatives Analysis has been completed, Metro will identify a proposed project and advance to the next phase of the study.

Metro anticipates that the project may ultimately span 18 to 20 miles and will travel east-west across the northern San Fernando Valley, potentially connecting to the East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project, the Chatsworth Metrolink Station, and either the North Hollywood Metro Orange/Red Line Station or the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station. The planning study will also identify potential opportunities to benefit communities through high quality urban design, green/sustainable infrastructure, and transit-oriented communities. The project is scheduled to open between 2023 and 2025.
