Metro has released a draft environmental impact report for the East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor (ESFVTC), a project with funding from Measures R and M that could bring a bus rapid transit or light rail line to the Van Nuys corridor.
The ESFVTC spans approximately 9.2 miles, starting at the Sylmar Metrolink station in the north and terminating at the Van Nuys Orange Line bus station in the south. As of 2010, the immediate surroundings of the transit corridor was found to be home to over 167,000 people in 2010, out of the approximately 458,000 people living in the larger study area. Employment within this section of the San Fernando Valley totaled 141,000 as of 2010, with approximatley 30 percent of those jobs in the immediate vicinity of the transit corridor.
To serve this population, Metro is studying a variety of transit modes, including curb-running bus rapid transit, median-running bus rapid transit, low-floor light rail and traditional light rail transit. Continue reading

With a daily average of more than 64,000 boardings, Expo is attracting as many riders in 2017 as it was projected to have in 2030.

Long talked about, the extension of Metro’s Purple Line subway, which, for right now, travels between Union Station and Wilshire and Western, was somewhat slow to get off the ground—and sometimes seemed like it would never arrive at all. But with a new influx of money from grants and voter-approved sales tax initiatives, prospects for the timely delivery of the longer route are suddenly looking better than ever.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the most important things to know about what promises to be a key part of the city’s growing transit network. Continu reading
Across Downtown, there’s plenty of evidence that construction on Metro’s Regional Connector—a project that will bring three new subway stations to the area and connect the Blue, Expo, and Gold lines—is in full swing.
But in Little Tokyo, which is where one of those new stations is being built, at First Street and Central Avenue, work is about to move off the street and underground, reports Metro’s news blog The Source. It says, “construction at the easternmost end of the Connector’s route is now fully underground and behind barriers.” continu to read
Los Angeles has long been notorious for being a car-based city — good luck getting around town using public transportation. While some manage to make a go of it between rail and buses, hobbyist designer Nick Andert put together a look at what the Metro system could look like with widespread political will, though Andert admits in his posts on Reddit that it might be more likely to see this kind of system in 40 years instead of 30.

It’s an even-numbered year and the world’s best athletes have descended upon Rio de Janeiro for displays of superhuman strength, agility, and speed. And for those stuck here in Los Angeles, watching the Olympics on TV, LA Metro is offering a chance to come face to face with the heroes of years past.
In an ambitious promotional event, the transit agency is bringing gold medalists to Metro stations throughout the Olympic Games. The athletes will apparently be available to meet fans and (presumably) pose for an endless series of selfies for hour-and-a-half blocks from August 8 through August 12 and from August 15 through August 19 (a meet and greet with boxer Paul Gonzales at the El Monte bus station already went down August 5).
