Councilmember Krekorian believes that expanding the San Fernando Valley's public transportation system will help grow the economy, create jobs and make life (and commutes) easier for residents. As a member of the Metro and Metrolink boards, he is the Valley's primary voice for increased transit options and better connectivity between neighborhoods.
He advocates for expanding rail and bus transit in the Valley, including improving and possibly converting the Orange Line to light rail, completing the East Valley North-South Transit Corridor and Sepulveda Pass projects, linking the Red Line to the Bob Hope Airport and connecting the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys by rail. Krekorian recently inaugurated new, Valley-Westside express bus service over the Sepulveda Pass, cutting daily commutes by 40 minuets.
Krekorian has also advocated for new, less confusing parking signs throughout the city, voted to ban third-party phone apps that sell parking spaces, lifted parking restrictions near elementary schools and supported sensible parking citation reform.
