East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor

Spanning 13 miles, the East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor in Los Angeles provides access to area schools hospitals, as well as major employers.  STV is providing systems, operations, and alignment planning and design services in support of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority’s (Metro) East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project. The firm also helped Metro explore the potential integration of bus rapid transit, light rail transit (LRT) and trams into the corridor as part of an alternative analyses.

STV developed advanced conceptual engineering plans and profiles for proposed LRT and streetcar options along with their respective substation and equipment locations. The team also studied prospective maintenance and operations facility requirements, costs, and the anticipated passenger travel times for each of the options. Metro’s Board of Directors ultimately selected LRT as the preferred alternative transit.
