New park-and-ride facility opens next to 101

A new $5.2-million park-and-ride facility near the Lindero Canyon Road Interchange in Westlake Village was opened today by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and the city of Westlake Village.

The 400-space Highway 101 Park & Ride lot was fully paid for with Measure R sales tax funds for Highway Operational Improvements, and will help promote carpooling and vanpooling on the congested 101 freeway in the Las Virgenes-Malibu area of Los Angeles County. The facility, located at 31107 East Thousand Oaks Boulevard, includes landscaping and irrigation improvements and lighting for the parking lot and new access roads.

“This project is the perfect example of how our Measure R transportation sales tax is bringing mobility benefits to freeway commuters,” said John Fasana, Metro Board Chair and Duarte City Council Member. “It will give motorists in the Las Virgenes-Malibu area a place to meet and share the ride, which reduces pollution and vehicle miles traveled, and improves our ability to manage 101 freeway capacity.”

The new park & ride facility is the second transportation improvement that opened this week in the Las Virgenes-Malibu region. On Tuesday, Metro celebrated the construction of a $32 million Agoura Road Widening project that improves safety and provides for multi-modal mobility along approximately two miles of Agoura Road and one mile of Canwood Street.

  1. Is this just a parking lot, or is Metro incorporating design features into it or doing something else that would encourage carpooling?

    • Seems like these park-n-ride lots are pretty much exactly that… Metro should add some bike lockers and maybe a bus stop to some of the busier lots.
