Metro and the city of Los Angeles are partnering to improve speed, frequency, and reliability for the over 12,000 daily boardings/passengers who ride Metro Line 234 along the Sepulveda Boulevard corridor in the San Fernando Valley.
That’s why we’re proposing bus lanes along a 5.5-mile segment of Sepulveda Blvd. and a .9-mile segment along westbound Ventura Boulevard. The project would convert the rightmost traffic lane in each direction along Sepulveda between Magnolia Boulevard and Rayen Street into a full-time bus lane, and the rightmost traffic lane on northbound Sepulveda between Ventura and Magnolia into a full-time bus lane.
The project would also convert the curbside lane on westbound Ventura between Vesper Avenue and Sepulveda into a peak hour bus lane from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on weekdays only.
Bus lanes have been shown to improve bus speeds by 15% or more, thus increasing service frequency and reliability, and moving more people within the existing roadway. Bus lanes help buses stay on schedule and get riders to their final destinations and transfer points more quickly. This project would also maintain just about all of the curbside parking as it exists today. Bus lanes also help us fulfill the mission of our NextGen Bus Plan that restructured bus service to provide faster and more frequency service.
