In 2022, construction is expected to begin on the first light rail line in the Valley since the demise of the Red Cars in the 1950s. The East San Fernando Valley Corridor project promises to transform life for hundreds of thousands of Valley residents, linking the Van Nuys Metro station to the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink station and providing swift efficient service to some of the busiest commercial and residential areas of the Valley.

This Van Nuys to Sylmar line is in the first tier of priority for funding by Measure M, the voter-approved initiative to support the expansion of mass transit throughout Los Angeles County. The Federal Transportation Authority is now giving fast-track review consideration to federal funding for the project as well, through the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021.
