FLAGSHIP: Planning Transit in the Sepulveda Corridor

Strategic Business Management


Metro is conducting a Feasibility Study (Study) to identify and evaluate a range of high-capacity rail transit alternatives between the San Fernando Valley and LAX, including connections to existing and planned Metro bus and rail lines, including the Orange, Purple, and Expo Lines. A number of alignments and station locations will be considered for the various rail alternatives. The study is expected to take approximately 20 months, with work beginning in December 2017 and concluding in Summer/Fall 2019. Its findings will be the basis for future environmental analysis and project refinement.

The Sepulveda Transit Corridor is part of the Measure M expenditure plan, with approximately $5.7 billion for new transit service to connect the San Fernando Valley and the Westside, scheduled to open by 2033. Approximately $3.8 billion is allocated to extend that service from the Westside to LAX with a 2057 opening date.

After almost two years, the Sepulveda Transit Corridor feasibility study is nearing completion. This talk will survey the processes and outcomes the study, including analysis of travel patterns, consideration of various travel mode technologies, challenges encountered with integrating a new transit line into the Metro network, and a comparison of various project alternatives. It will also include the study's most recent findings about ridership, travel time, route alignment, stations, and next steps.
