As part of the Nov. 8 ballot, Los Angeles County voters will be considering Measure M, a half-cent sales tax increase and extension of the Measure R half-cent tax beyond 2039 to pay for transit, highway, walking, biking and other transportation projects. Both taxes would continue in perpetuity or until voters decide to end them.
Metro has produced fact sheets that show the projects and programs in Measure M’s spending plan for each of the nine subregions of the county. The Arroyo Verdugo Subregion includes Burbank, Glendale, La Canada-Flintridge, Pasadena and parts of unincorporated L.A. County. Among the major projects for this subregion is a bus rapid transit line between the Red/Orange Line station in North Hollywood, Burbank, Glendale and the Gold Line in Pasadena.
