To Metro, the new 902 bus that begins service on December 13th will relieve congestion on the Orange Line. But for transit advocates at Southern California Transit Advocates, there are plenty of reasons to be opposed to it, including this point:

How can a third of a billion be invested in a busway that now calls for supplemental express service on parallel surface streets a mere four years after opening? This seems to bespeak of defects in the design of the facility or shortcomings in the basic underlying assumptions behind it. In any case, these issues should be explored before any significant investments are undertaken that are born of a need to fix mistakes in the conception or execution of the Orange Line.

The Orange Line Van Nuys Station is the second most used stop next to the NoHo Station where riders transfer to the subway.
