The Sepulveda Pass Transit Corridor is a planned transit corridor connecting the Los Angeles Basin to the San Fernando Valley. Project alternatives along the four mile section of I-405, with an option for a heavy rail or light rail along the corridor; providing bus-only on- and off-ramps for bus rapid transit service on the I-405 carpool lanes; and implementing peak-hour bus rapid transit lanes on the freeway’s shoulders.[1]


The project is considered a way to relieve freeway congestion and provide an alternative to I-405 through the Sepulveda Pass. A total of $1.0 billion of funding is allotted to the Sepulveda Pass Transit Corridor project under Measure R.[2] Under Measure R, the expected completion of the project is 2039, but with the 30/10 Plan, now known nationally as America Fast Forward, the project could be built in less than 10 years.


Transit advocates have proposed combining the Van Nuys Transit Corridor and Sepulveda Pass Corridor into a single study with an aim to connect Sylmar, Van Nuys, the Orange Line, Sherman Oaks, UCLA, and the future Westwood Purple Line station, with a future extension south to the Exposition Line, Los Angeles International Airport, South Bay, or beyond.[3]
