NoHo to Pasadea Bus to Become Permanent Fixture in the Community
On Tuesday, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) approved a dedicated busway connecting the Metro Red Line station in North Hollywood to the Gold Line Del Mar station in Pasadena.
The MTA will begin studying two options, a rapid transit busway along major city streets in Pasadena, Burbank and Glendale, or a busway primarily fixed in the middle of the 134 and 5 freeways. The street alignment is estimated to serve 18,000 riders a day by 2035, and the freeway alignment would serve around 10,300 riders.
“This express line provides commuters in both Valleys a convenient way to travel between the Metro Gold Line in Pasadena and Metro Red/Orange Lines in North Hollywood with stops at the Burbank Media District and North Downtown Glendale,” said Supervisor Kathryn Barger.
