To help gather information for the Sepulveda Transit Corridor project, Metro is conducting a short online survey to understand more about those who use the 405 freeway, Sepulveda Boulevard, canyon roads and other routes between the San Fernando Valley, the Westside, LAX, the South Bay and other parts of the Southland.
The survey includes questions about travel times, routes, destinations and what is most important to those traveling around our region — whether it be travel time, convenience or impact on the environment. Survey results will help Metro target our outreach for the project. As an incentive, Metro is offering all those who take the survey a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card.
The Sepulveda Transit Corridor project launched a feasibility study last December to evaluate a number of rail transit alternatives with potential connections to the Orange Line, East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor (bus rapid transit or light rail between Van Nuys and the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station), Purple Line Extension, Expo Line and other transit connections near LAX. Local funding for the project comes from Measures R and M — with Measure M supplying nearly $10 billion for the project. Metro is also pursuing the possibility of a public-private partnership to deliver the project sooner.
The feasibility study is scheduled to be complete in Fall 2019. The study’s findings will be the basis for further planning activities, including state and federal environmental studies that will refine the project.
