Document Description
The North San Fernando Valley (NSFV) BRT Network Improvements is a Measure M project, with a projected opening date between FY2023 and FY2025. The proposed NSFV BRT Network Improvements would enhance existing bus service and increase transit system connectivity in the San Fernando Valley (SFV) by implementing peak period bus lanes in segments of Roscoe Boulevard where parking is already restricted and would be built within existing public right-of-way (ROW). Other improvements include installing transit signal priority, all-door boarding across SFV, adding bus bulbs at high usage bus stops, bus shelters, and other improvements.
