​Metro understands that getting between the Valley, Westside and LAX can be challenging. Building on the promise of voter-approved Measure M, Metro is working to improve these connections and offer new options for the more than 400,000 Angelenos who travel through the Sepulveda Corridor every day to commute to work, school, and other destinations.

What We're Studying
Metro is currently conducting a Feasibility Study (Study) to identify and evaluate a range of high-capacity transit alternatives between the San Fernando Valley and LAX, with possible connections to existing and planned Metro bus and rail lines, including the Orange, Purple, and Expo Lines.

​Your Input is Important
​As the study gets underway, we need your input to learn more about the travelers who currently use the Sepulveda Corridor, including the 405 Freeway, Sepulveda Boulevard and the hillside roads connecting the San Fernando Valley, Westside, LAX, South Bay, and other areas in the L.A. region. We would like to know more about travel times, destinations and what's most important to you when making this trip.   
We encourage you to take our short online survey in English or Spanish to help guide our work. As an incentive to participate, Metro is offering a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card.

Please be on the lookout for announcements regarding upcoming meetings and other opportunities to participate in this transformative project.

​Cheviot Hills Residents: Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) has notified us that today begins a two-week project to replace and upgrade equipment at the HBOC oil and gas production facility in the Cheviot Hills neighborhood – the site of the odorant spill back in November. The new pump being installed is an upgraded model, containing an additional valve designed to help prevent odorant from escaping. In addition, they have promised they will take precautions to minimize any odors during the work. While they do not anticipate any odor will be noticeable to the community during this process, we encourage anyone who smells natural gas to call them immediately at 1-800-427-2200.

Being prepared for a disaster today means more than just having a plan
for an earthquake, fire, or flood. We must be ready for man-made disasters that,
unfortunately, include workplace violence, terrorism, and other mass casualty

Find out what YOU need to know and do to increase your chances of survival should
you be faced with one of these situations.

LAPD Officers will instruct us about everything from “situational awareness” at work
and in public places to the concept of “Run-Hide- Fight.” Additionally, they’ll take us
into the minds of first responders as they enter these types of scenes.

​This presentation will be completely interactive, so bring your enthusiasm and your

​In a regional emergency such as an earthquake, our communications systems—cell phones, land lines, and Internet— likely will fail.

FRS (Family Radio Service) radios, which are small, portable hand-held devices that function like walkie-talkies, work well for short range communication. They are an important part of your family’s disaster preparedness kit. Anyone who uses a mobile phone can, with a little training and practice (and fresh batteries), become a good FRS radio communicator. Learn how to use your FRS radio and practice your skills in a simulated emergency drill.

Please bring your FRS radios and batteries to our Emergency Communications Training:

Saturday, February 10, 9:00AM to noon
Meet near the flagpole in front of Palms Middle School
10860 Woodbine Street, between Kelton and Glendon
Los Angeles, 90034

Buying your FRS radio
You can buy handheld radios at most hardware and sporting goods stores, disaster suppliers,
and general merchandise stores, as well as online. Both Motorola and Midland have a selection
of moderately-priced models, as do several other brands.

NOTE: FRS radio operators don’t require a license but users of similar, more powerful, GMRS
two-way radios must have an FCC (Federal Communications Commission)-issued license. Some
devices are marketed as "FRS/GMRS" or "dual-service devices" but, if you operate such a radio exclusively under FRS rules, you don’t need a license.
