Public comment period for NoHo to Pasadena Bus Rapid Transit Corridor Project extended to Dec. 28

Metro is extending the public comment period for the North Hollywood to Pasadena Bus Rapid Transit Corridor Project to Dec. 28, 2020.

The Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the project was released on Oct. 26, and we have since held two virtual public hearings to provide information and gather feedback from the community on the project. Metro will continue to take feedback from the community via its virtual platform and by phone, email and mail.

The $267 million, 18-mile project aims to build a high-quality Bus Rapid Transit line that will connect the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys, traveling east-west between the North Hollywood Metro B (Red)/G (Orange) Line Station and Pasadena City College with stops in downtown Burbank, Glendale and Eagle Rock, depending on the route option.

The project’s goal is to provide a fast and affordable bus line that will service a corridor that sees more than 700,000 daily trips. This new line will also offer a more sustainable mobility option by utilizing zero-emission electric buses.

BRT is a high-quality bus service that provides faster and more reliable, equitable and convenient service. BRT features may include fewer stops, frequent service, dedicated bus lanes, high-quality stations with amenities, transit signal priority, all-door boarding, and more prominent branding.

The project is funded by the Measure M sales tax measure approved by L.A. County voters in 2016, along with SB 1 gas tax and vehicle fees, and is scheduled to open by 2024. It aims to meet priorities set out in Metro’s Vision 2028 strategic plan to offer high-quality mobility options and outstanding trip experiences, while enhancing communities and lives through better transportation options and access to opportunity.

  1. It would be really awesome if Pasadena-Glendale-Burbank could be connected by light rail. Maybe one day 🙂

    • They will, but that will most likely require the route of the line to be 95% light rail subway. There’s no way no one will want it in their front or back yard. Not to mention there isn’t space outside the Chandler ROW where the neighborhood didn’t want the BRT.

    • I completely disagree. What you call “Light Rail” is really a tram/streetcar that adds traffic to surface streets. Any true rail project should be grade separated and doesn’t share street crossings. Please don’t encourage Metro to build more tram lines.
