Orange Line riders might have some more rush-hour wiggle room when they travel the busway later this month. On December 13th, Metro will deploy service enhancements, including a new peak hour bus line that's expected to reduce Orange Line crowds.

"Van Nuys is the second most popular stop on the Orange Line" explained Metro Spokesman Dave Sotero. Line 902 will reduce travel time and eliminate a transfer for riders traveling between the Red Line Subway and the Northeast Valley. Currently, commuters are using the Orange Line between Van Nuys and the North Hollywood stations to transfer to and from busses along Van Nuys Blvd.
