Operating plan proposed for Orange Line Extension


Metro is currently putting the finishing touches on the four-mile extension of the Orange Line from the Canoga station to the Chatsworth Metrolink station. The project is expected to open in June.

The above maps show the plan that Metro staff is recommending for the Orange Line. The Metro Board of Directors will consider approving the plan later this month as part of the agency’s proposed Tier 1 service changes.

Under the plan, buses will continue to run directly between North Hollywood and Warner Center. The extension will also allow every other bus to run directly between North Hollywood and Chatsworth. In late night hours, one bus will run between North Hollywood, Warner Center and Chatsworth, allowing for a single-seat ride to all Orange Line stations.

The following slides from this Power Point presentation spells out the operating plan.


The Board of Directors are scheduled to consider the service changes in their Systems Safety and Operations Committee on Thursday, March 15 (noon), and at the full Board meeting on Thursday, March 22 (9 a.m.), at Metro headquarters adjacent to Los Angeles Union Station.
