Controversial busway project approved in L.A.

Posted on July 27, 2001

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has approved plans to build a 14-mile, $284 million busway along a densely trafficked section of the San Fernando Valley. The MTA board voted 8-3 in favor of the project despite stalwart opposition from the local community. In particular, Orthodox Jews who live in the area said the busway would disrupt the Sabbath. The buses would run along an abandoned rail line down the center of a busy boulevard at seven- to 10-minute intervals during peak hours. A vote on the final environmental impact report is due in four to six months.
