This high-speed bus line, a hybrid between a standard bus and a light rail system, runs along a dedicated, right-of-way route between the North Hollywood Red Line Subway station and Warner Center in the West San Fernando Valley. This line, which has seen its ridership increase steadily since it went on line in 2005, has revolutionized the way cities are thinking about public transportation.
This 13.7 mile light rail line, which connects the Metro Blue, Green, and Red lines, has brought a whole new level of connectivity to the Los Angeles public transit system.
Voters successfully passed Measure R on the November 4th ballot. Measure R will provide $40 billion in new transit mobility projects in the next 30 years through a half-cent sales tax increase. Find out what projects are in store for LA County.
Bike Benefits from Bailout
The government’s recent $700 billion bailout of the financial sector includes a provision that will directly benefit those who use their bicycles as their primary mode of transportation. Starting January 2008, those who commute by bike will be eligible for a $20-a-month, tax-fee reimbursement from their employers for bicycle-related expenses. Employers will be able to deduct this expense from their federal taxes.
