Metro to hold public hearing on proposed changes to Line 177 in San Gabriel Valley

Metro will hold a public hearing in November to receive community input on proposed modifications to Metro’s Line 177. Approved changes could become effective December 10, 2017, or later.

Line 177 is a peak directional service that currently travels one direction in the morning and the opposite direction in the evening; the route travels from Pasadena City College, to JPL, serving Caltech and the Gold Line’s Del Mar and Memorial Park stations. Route proposals include a bi-directional service that will operate between JPL and Caltech, or between JPL and Memorial Park Station.

Details of the service proposals to be considered and the Notice of Public Hearing are available for review. These modifications are proposed to improve the frequency and efficiency of Line 177, and provide greater access for residents going to and from La Canada Flintridge. The public is encouraged to attend this hearing and comment on the proposals. The public hearing on this service proposal will be held:

Monday, November 13 at 5 p.m.
Pasadena Senior Center
85 Holly Street
Pasadena, CA 91103

The public hearing will commence at the listed time and will close after all testimony has been received by those members of the public present.

Note: The San Gabriel Valley Service Council will convene a meeting immediately after the public hearing and the proposals may be approved in whole or in part during that meeting. Approved changes may also include other alternatives from public comment. Interested members of the public are encouraged to attend the upcoming hearing and provide testimony on Line 177 service proposal.

  1. The Line 177 used to run from City of Hope to Glendale Galleria via Pasadena, JPL, La Cresenta. Not sure now but it was operated by a Laidlaw company as a MTA contractor. It ran all day with a one hour headway which was continually screwed up by the contractor due to the assignments being held at City of Hope awaiting reliefs each day.
