North Hollywood To Pasadena Bus Rapid Transit Project Holds Community Input Workshops

By On November 13, 2019

The North Hollywood to Pasadena Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Corridor Project holds several community meetings over the coming week to allow for public feedback. Tonight, Wednesday, November 13, Metro officials will host a meeting at the Buena Vista branch of the Burbank Public Library from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The North Hollywood to Pasadena Bus Rapid Transit Corridor spans approximately 18 miles and runs through Burbank, so Los Angeles Metro officials are seeking public input as plans for connecting the region develop.

According to a Metro press release, these community workshops “will allow community members to share with us how they envision what a BRT could look like in their community.”

Currently, plans include a center lane rapid transit bus along Olive Boulevard with the removal of street parking to allow for the building of such a lane. The North Hollywood to Pasadena BRT Project is funded by Measure M and Senate Bill 1, which provide $267 million in funding and has a planned “opening date” in 2024.
