As part of the exemption process,  Metro will present a project business case and racial equity analysis at the community meeting on Thursday,  September 29th.

Status

We are also looking at ways to provide better connections with other existing and planned bus and rail services.

The primary corridors to be improved through the BRT Network Improvements include Roscoe Boulevard, Nordhoff Street and Lankershim Boulevard, with additional improvements planned for Reseda Boulevard, Sherman Way, Vanowen Street and Victory Boulevard. These may include a number of capital and operational improvements, such as:

> Service and amenity improvements:

  • Improved service frequency daytime weekdays every 10 minutes for the Roscoe Line 152 and Nordhoff Line 166
  • New bus shelters at nearly 400 locations
  • Significant bus stop amenities including larger shelters, more seating, new real time and wayfinding information, and better lighting at five key locations
  • New zero emission electric buses for Lines 152, 162, 166 and 240

> Bus speed and reliability improvements:

  • New peak hour only (7–10am, 3–7pm) bus lanes on 11 miles of Roscoe Bl
  • Transit signal priority added for up to seven bus lines (152, 162, 164, 165, 166, 224, and 240)
  • New bus stop design (bus bulbs) to avoid delays for buses merging in and out of traffic at over 80 stops
  • All-door boarding on all bus lines in the San Fernando Valley

The North San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project is pursuing a Statutory Exemption through Senate Bill 288 (SB 288) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). SB 288, signed into law on September 28, 2020, provides a new statutory California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) exemption for transit prioritization projects which 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).

SB 288 accelerates sustainable transportation projects by providing an exemption from CEQA for a targeted set of sustainable transit projects, “active transportation” (walking and biking) projects and projects that expand sustainable mobility.

Metro has identified this project as a candidate for exemption under SB 288. Since the BRT Network Improvements option is valued over $100 million, the next steps for compliance under SB 288 would include the preparation of a business case and racial equity analysis and conducting public outreach meetings.

As part of the exemption process, Metro will present a project business case and racial equity analysis at the upcoming community meeting.
