East San Fernando Light Rail Transit Project will provide connections to key destinations and greater opportunities for transit users to connect to the growing transit network in the San Fernando Valley.
Location: San Fernando Valley
Phase: Design & Engineering
Type: Better Transit
Forecasted Opening: 2028
Metro’s plan for better transit includes more rail service in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. With adding 16 new stations between the G Line (Orange) Van Nuys Station and the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station, this light rail project will improve connections and access to key destinations.
The final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for this project was certified by the Metro Board in December 2020 and the Record of Decision issued by the Federal Transit Administration in February 2021.
This project is slated to begin construction in 2022 and open for service in 2028.
