New Bus Lines Coming Before Christmas

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

December 17th seems to be a big day for the MTA (maybe everyone gets to go on vacation on the 18th?), but whatevs, LAist is never one to pooh-pooh progress, particularly regarding public transportation in this fair city.

The MTA announced today that the Valley will get a new Rapid line on Reseda Blvd. between Northridge and Tarzana - welcome Line 741!

The 364 won't be a Rapid per-se but will be a "limited stop" bus that will scoot along Nordhoff and Osborne streets between Chatsworth and Sun Valley. Line 350 will also be a limited line, taking people between downtown Los Angeles and the Metro Green Line Avalon Station via Central Avenue. And Line 355 will go along Compton Avenue providing limited stops between downtown and the Metro Blue Line Firestone Station.

If you want to try out the super-long 60-foot bad boys, climb aboard the 233 (Van Nuys) and 204 (Vermont Ave.) and enjoy the modernization as they upgrade from the 40-foot busses.
