Antelope Valley Line Capacity and Service Improvements Program
The Antelope Valley Line (AVL) Capacity and Service Improvements Program aims to improve service frequency and reliability along the 76.6 mile-long AVL commuter rail corridor between Lancaster and downtown Los Angeles to meet the mobility needs of residents, employees, and visitors throughout the region.
Location: Arroyo Verdugo Cities, Central Los Angeles, North County, San Fernando Valley
Phase: Environmental Review
Type: Better Transit
Forecasted Opening: 2030
Metro has a plan to make it easier to get around with increased rail service along the entire Antelope Valley Line (AVL) corridor between Lancaster and downtown LA. This project includes multiple sections of double-tracking as well as additional platforms at the Lancaster Terminal and Santa Clarita Station.
This project is in the environmental review process. Scoping was completed in Fall 2020 and Metro released the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) on July 28, 2021 and will accept public comment on it through September 10, 2021. The final EIR release and certificate is expected in late 2021.
Take a moment to submit your comments on the Draft EIR. You can submit your comments in writing or orally during the public hearings. The formal public review and comment period on the Draft EIR extends from July 28, 2021 to September 10, 2021. To submit your public comment, fill out the form.
Comments can also be submitted via mail, email or telephone:
