Present Land Use
Bus service is proposed along City streets. The Canoga alignment includes an approximately 100-foot right-of-way owned by Metro. There are 94 leases/sign board contracts and licenses/easements within that right-of-way mostly for commercial and industrial uses.

Document Description
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) proposes to extend bus service from the existing Metro Orange Line terminus at Canoga near Vanowen, north to the Chatsworth Metrolink Station. Seven potential build alternatives have been identified: 1) Mixed Flow Rapid Bus on Canoga, 2) Dedicated Lane Rapid Bus on Canoga, 3) Canoga Avenue Busway - MOL rail right-of-way Extension, 4) Mixed Flow Rapid Bus on De Soto, 5) Dedicated Lane Rapid Bus on De Soto, 6) Mixed Flow Rapid on Topanga Canyon, and 7) Dedicated Lane Rapid Bus on Topanga Canyon. The EIR will also consider the feasibility of the extension of transit service from the Chatsworth Metrolink Station, north to a new park-and-ride facility at the SR-118 freeway. Two potential routes for this further extension will be evaluated: Topanga Canyon and De Soto. In addition the EIR will consider a Transportation System Management Alternative (TSM), which will include the addition of bus service on Canoga and improvements to bus service along existing routes. The EIR will also consider the No Project Alternative. Modifications to the Division 8 bus maintenance facility on Canoga at Nordhoff, or a new maintenance or bus parking facility may also be evaluated in the EIR.
