Metro Board Unanimously Passes Landmark Motion to Study Light Rail in the San Fernando Valley

Community and Business Leaders, Elected Officials, Grassroots Transit Advocates Will Gather to Announce Broad Support

LOS ANGELES- In response to today’s unanimous vote by the Metro Board of Directors to study the feasibility of creating a new light rail system on the Orange Line and connecting the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys, State, County and City elected officials, community and business leaders, and grassroots transit advocates will announce their strong support for the landmark measure.

WHAT: Press Conference 

WHEN: THIS FRIDAY, July 25, 9:00 a.m.

WHERE: North Hollywood Orange Line Station, 5384 Lankershim Blvd North Hollywood (West side of Lankershim)

WHO: Metro Board members, elected officials, community and business leaders, and transit advocates, including:

  • Paul Krekorian, Metro Director and LA City Councilmember, District 2
  • Zev Yaroslavsky, LA County Supervisor
  • Michael Antonovich, LA County Supervisor (invited)
  • Adrin Nazarian, California State Assemblymember, District 46
  • Eric Garcetti, LA Mayor (invited)
  • Bob Blumenfield, LA Councilmember, District 3
  • Ara Najarian, Glendale City Councilmember
  • Stuart Waldman, President, Valley Industry and Commerce Association
  • Denny Zane, Executive Director, Move LA
  • Lucy Burghdorf, Bob Hope Airport
  • Hillary Norton, Executive Director, Fixing Angelenos Stuck in Traffic (FAST)
  • Jose Palma, Board of Directors, Midtown NoHo Neighborhood Council
  • Ron Miller: LA/Orange Counties Building & Construction Trades Council
  • Ken Phillips, Senior Vice President, Valley Economic Alliance
  • Michelle Gillstrap: Universal City North Hollywood Chamber of Commerce
  • Bart Reed: Transit Coalition

 

“This is a big step for San Fernando Valley’s two million residents, who need more transit options, including light rail,” said Metro Director and LA City Councilmember Paul Krekorian. Now, we’ll find out exactly what it will take to get there. Because of this vote, Metro will study options to upgrade the Orange Line and create a San Fernando and San Gabriel Valley transit corridor.”

Councilmember Krekorian continued, “Valley residents want more connectivity. Out of more than 80 rail stops in LA County, the Valley only has two. It’s an underserved area when it comes to transit. We have an opportunity to change that and give people better ways to get from home to work to school.”

THE MOTION

The Metro Board motion was sponsored by Councilmember Krekorian, Mayor Garcetti, Supervisors Yaroslavsky and Antonovich, and Directors John Fasana and Ara Najarian. Here’s what they unanimously passed today:

  • Study Conversion of the Orange Line to Light Rail: Examine options for enhancing service and ridership on the Orange Line to decrease travel time and increase efficiency, including converting much of the Orange Line to light rail.

 

  • Study Connecting the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys by Light Rail: Study the creation of a San Fernando/San Gabriel Valley High Capacity Transit Corridor that would connect the Gold Line in Pasadena to Bob Hope Airport and the Red and Orange Lines in North Hollywood, all by light rail.

BACKGROUND

The Metro Board vote comes on the heels of Gov. Jerry Brown signing AB 577 (Nazarian), which allows for the construction of light rail in the southeast San Fernando Valley. The historic move repealed a 23-year ban that had constrained Valley transportation options, affecting hundreds of thousands of commuters. In response, Metro constructed the bus-only Orange Line, which has been a tremendous success, far exceeding ridership expectations by carrying close to 30,000 people a day.

Now, with all options on the table, the new Metro study could have a positive impact on millions of people in LA County.
