Upcoming meetings to provide updates on North San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor project

The North San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor project is hosting community meetings in June to provide the communities and stakeholders an update on the project. Scroll down to see meeting dates and times — including one meeting that will be virtual.

The project is now studying an option that aims to increase connectivity and provide high-quality bus service and transit infrastructure across the northern part of the Valley. An earlier version of the project aimed to build most of the improvements on a single bus rapid transit line.

This new approach that will benefit more bus lines and more riders is the result of extensive outreach and direction from the Metro Board of Directors.

The new option works to improve the customer experience and includes various Bus Rapid Transit elements:

  • Increases service frequency to every 10 minutes on Roscoe Bl (Line 152) and Nordhoff St (Line 166) during the day on weekdays.
  • Improves transit travel times on up to seven corridors (Roscoe Bl, Nordhoff St, Lankershim Bl, Sherman Way, Reseda Bl/Ventura Bl, Vanowen St, and Victory Bl) through new transit signal priority to reduce delays at intersections and by installing bus bulbs on sidewalks to reduce delays caused by buses pulling in and out of traffic at bus stops.
  • Provides peak-hour bus lanes on weekdays on Roscoe Boulevard between Lankershim and Topanga Canyon boulevards to speed up bus trips while minimizing parking and transit impacts to North Valley residents.
  • Adds nearly 400 new bus shelters at the busiest stops along multiple Valley streets.
  • Provides significant amenities (larger shelters, more seating, real-time and wayfinding information, lighting) at five busy bus stops, including the California State University, Northridge (CSUN) bus station.
  • Provides all-door boarding (faster boarding through any door on the bus) on bus lines across the Valley.
  • Plans to deploy new zero-emission electric buses on up to four corridors (Roscoe Bl, Nordhoff St, Sherman Way, Reseda Bl/Ventura Bl). The electric buses are very quiet and provide a very smooth ride.

All these elements can be delivered 18 to 24 months sooner than a new single bus rapid transit line.
