Metro will be conducting two virtual Public Hearings for the proposed NoHo to Pasadena Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project. The project would construct a high-quality bus corridor to provide faster, reliable, and convenient bus service that rivals the speed, capacity, and comfort of a rail line.  The project would connect the Metro Red / Orange lines in North Hollywood with the Gold Line in Pasadena.  In Burbank the project would construct dedicated bus lanes along Olive Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard through Burbank, and would construct stations in the Media District, Downtown Burbank, and near the Burbank/Glendale border.  Metro has additional information at their project website:

Metro released a Draft Environmental Impact Report that is now available for public review and comment. To collect comments, Metro is hosting two virtual Public Hearings for the project:
