Temporary changes to G Line (Orange) boarding locations at Balboa and Woodley

The G Line (Orange) will undergo crossing gate testing at the Hayvenhurst pedestrian crossing from Nov. 8 through Nov. 19 as part of the G Line BRT Improvements Project.

The hours of testing will be Monday to Friday between 6 p.m. and 12 a.m. midnight. During this time, G Line buses will detour onto Victory Boulevard between Balboa Blvd. and Woodley Avenue. There may be minor delays in service while testing is in progress.

Bus stops will be temporarily relocated nearby on Victory Boulevard at Balboa Boulevard in both directions, and at Victory Blvd. and Woodley Avenue westbound only. Metro will provide personnel at both Balboa and Woodley stations to help guide riders to the relocated stops. Signage will be posted in the area showing bus boarding and stop locations.

The project aims to make the G Line safer and faster by adding railroad-style crossing gates at key roads that cross the busway and a bridge for the busway over busy Sepulveda and Van Nuys boulevards.

  1. Great. Please get this done soon. The orange line BRT has been too slow for far too long. This also helps prepare the line for LRT conversion, which really needs to happen in a sane timeline, rather than what’s currently laid out by Metro. One question though. When saying “KEY ROADS that cross the busway”, does this imply that not all intersections will necessarily have crossing gates and therefore preemption? I hope not. Even a few relatively minor non-gated street crossings here and there can cause delays due to LADOT’s car centric whims.

  2. the absolute crawl of government beurocracy towards sustainability will leave us all dead.

  3. Great! Please continue to make improvements to prioritize movement of public transit buses and trains.

  4. Busway crossing, I like that! This should be cool actually. Show us some pics when this one is done.

  5. Hard to believe gates “recommended” in 2017 and here we are in 2021 and just getting started. Amazing…
