Present Land Use
The Mid-City/Westside Transit Corridor Project study area is located on the Westside of Los Angeles County and encompasses approximately 112 sq mi. The study area is roughly bounded by the Pacific Ocean on the west, Sunset Boulevard and the Hollywood Freeway (US 101) on the north, Hope Street and Figueroa Street on the east, and Slauson/Manchester Boulevards on the south. The study area includes portions of the City of Los Angeles, unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County (Baldwin Hills, Sawtelle), and the Cities of Culver City, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica. The proposed project is linear and includes various land use designations and zonings.

Document Description
The Wilshire Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project is a rapid transit system operating in the curb lane along the north and south sides of Wilshire Boulevard from Western Avenue to the City of Santa Monica. The Wilshire BRT is intended to provide higher capacity transit service to the Westside area that would improve upon the existing Metro Rapid Bus service through such features as new higher capacity buses, repair of the curb lane in the Wilshire Center, Park MIle and Miracle Mile; enhanced station areas, parking facilities in two locations; an enlarged Downtown bus storage maintenance facility; and a bus only lane (curb lane) in the peak period (if supported by the affected jurisdictions).
