The Metropolitan Transit Authority board has unanimously adopted a motion presented by Supervisor Antonovich, Chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, at the San Fernando Council of Governments meeting to identify transportation priorities which will serve as the foundation of a valley wide transportation matrix.

The motion, co-authored by Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky and Director Ara Najarian, includes a rail connection to Bob Hope Airport, upgrading Metrolink and Los Angeles-San Diego rail corridors, completion of the High Occupancy Lane system across the San Fernando Valley, and connecting and coordinating transit systems.

In addition, the office of Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky introduced an amendment to Antonovich’s original COG adopted motion to include the East Valley North-South Corridor connection to the future Sepulveda Pass project.

“The transportation needs of the San Fernando Valley have been overlooked for far too long,” said Antonovich. “This action unifies the elected leaders and the business community of the Valley to ensure the Valley’s future needs are met.”
