Orange Line Improvements

The Metro Orange Line (MOL) Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Improvements Project seeks to provide safe and cost-effective strategies to improve operating speeds, capacity and safety, while addressing passenger needs and minimizing disruption to the San Fernando Valley residents.

Metro has completed a technical study which recommended improvements that will enhance the BRT Line’s speed, safety, reliability and ridership. The proposed improvements that were evaluated include grade separations on major streets, minor street closures, better signal priority technology, electronic bus connectivity and a four-quadrant gating system. Coordination with the City of Los Angeles is underway in implementing a pilot installation of railroad gates at a non-public, traffic signal-controlled intersection on the MOL to test and verify the reliable activation and proper operation of gates for BRT application. In conjunction with the pilot gates, a traffic impact analysis is being conducted with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) to evaluate potential impacts of gating on traffic in the MOL corridor and to ensure that the proposed gating system achieves the stated project goals while minimizing delays for Valley vehicle traffic. The proposed gating-system will reduce or eliminate incidents between vehicles and MOL buses, as well as increase the speeds of buses along the corridor and reduce travel times for riders.


Funding from Measure M and the recently awarded grant from the SB-1 Local Partnership Program provides up to $320 million to further improve this 18-mile Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Corridor in the San Fernando Valley.

We’re making improvements to bus service in Warner Center .

Starting June 24, 2018, Canoga and Chatsworth stations will serve as endpoints on the Orange Line and will make way for the new Warner Center Shuttle.

The Warner Center Shuttle will serve 10 new stops in and around Warner Center seven days a week, every 10 minutes during most times of the day. Explore restaurants and shopping, hit the gym before or after work, or check a few items off your to-do list, all without the hassles of driving and parking.

Customers can view the details and a map of our shiny new Shuttle service as well.

There are no upcoming meetings at this time.
