The North San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project presented a new approach, called the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Network Improvements option, to the community in June 2022 for their review and feedback.
This new option aims to increase connectivity and provide high-quality bus service and transit infrastructure in the North Valley.
The BRT Network Improvements would provide the following benefits:
•Faster, more frequent, and more reliable bus service.
•Improved connections to the regional transit network.
•Better access to important destinations across the region.
•More transit to meet growing demand.
•Enhanced bus stops.
•Service improvements delivered to riders sooner.
Metro has identified this project as a candidate for exemption under Senate Bill 288 (SB 288). SB 288 provides a new California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) statutory exemption for transit prioritization projects.
These projects may include transit signal priority, conversion of general-purpose lanes to peak-hour bus-only lanes, and bus stop enhancements on existing public rights-of-way (ROW). Since the BRT Network Improvements option is valued at over $100 million, the next steps for compliance under SB 288 include the preparation of a project business case and racial equity analysis and conducting public outreach meetings.
Metro will host a virtual community meeting this month to present the project business case and racial equity analysis.
