L.A. Metro Begins Public Review on Environmental Report for NoHo to Pasadena Bus Route

Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials on Monday released a draft environmental report and opened a public review period for a proposed North Hollywood-to-Pasadena rapid bus line.

Metro officials said they will hold virtual public hearings to provide information and gather feedback from residents on the project. The public comment period runs through Dec. 10.

The $267 million 18-mile project aims to build a rapid transit bus line that will connect the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys, traveling east-west between the North Hollywood Metro B (Red)/G (Orange) Line Station and Pasadena City College, with stops in downtown Burbank, Glendale, and Eagle Rock, depending on the route option.

The environmental report is designed to provide information on potential environmental impacts, identify ways to prevent potential damage to the environment, and provide information about the decision-making process used by Metro on the project. It also includes information on potential route options and alternatives to be considered by the public.

If all goes according to plan, the final environmental impact report will be published in the spring, and the line will be in operation by 2024, according to Metro.

The draft environmental impact report for the project is available at www.metro.net/projects/noho-pasadena-corridor/.

People can send their comments on the project by mail to Scott Hartwell, LA Metro, One Gateway Plaza, Mail Stop 99-22-6, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
