North Hollywood to Pasadena Transit Corridor
The North Hollywood to Pasadena Transit Corridor project is part of Metro’s plan for better transit.
Location: Central Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Valley
Phase: Environmental Review
Type: Better Transit
Forecasted Opening: 2024
The North Hollywood to Pasadena Transit Corridor project is part of Metro’s plan for better transit. This project will connect the cities of Los Angeles (North Hollywood and Eagle Rock communities), Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena, improving access to jobs, education and other important destinations.
With this project, Metro is planning Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), which is faster and more reliable than regular bus service. BRT will help take cars off the road and serve neighborhoods that need public transit services the most, while improving air quality with the use of electric zero-emission vehicles.
Metro began studying various routes for this project in 2018 and is currently in environmental review. We released a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for public review and comment from October 26, 2020 to December 28, 2020.
Metro held virtual community meetings with an update on proposed project and refinements in Eagle Rock and Burbank. The meetings presented updated information on design options for the sections of the project in Eagle Rock and Burbank, with an opportunity to provide feedback. Meeting content was specific to Eagle Rock or Burbank communities to allow attendance based on community interest.
The Metro team anticipates completing the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in late 2021/early 2022. The public will have the opportunity to review the Final EIR prior to Board approval.
