THE Orange Line busway has done it again. The 14-mile cross-Valley busway set another ridership record in March. There were more than 23,000 boardings of the big silver buses every weekday – and about 13,500 on Saturdays. What’s notable about this is that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials didn’t expect that many regular Orange Line boardings for 13 more years. They obviously underestimated the desperation for transportation alternatives in the San Fernando Valley. Now that the busway has proven itself over and over again in its first 18 months, it’s up to MTA and city leaders to keep the momentum rolling. Popular public transportation in a city of traffic gridlock is something to be grateful for and nurtured. And that means making the Orange Line even easier to use with the expeditious completion of a Chatsworth leg and north-south connections on major streets like Van Nuys and Laurel Canyon boulevards. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
