Welcome to the San Fernando Valley Transit Insider!

Our mission is to provide the history of transit service in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, as well as perspective on that history. We hope that for the researcher, we will be a useful resource; for the transit fan or public transportation advocate, a reference source; and for those who have previously lived in the Valley, a nostalgic look at how transit service evolved over more than a century.

We also provide current transportation news in the region and other pertinent information, for your convenience.

Review a century of San Fernando Valley transit service, from the original rail and bus
service of the early 20th Century, subsequent expansion leading to the establishment
of the service grid in 1975 and the restructuring study of the mid-1990s, to the
implementation of Metro Rail to the Valley, Metro Orange Line busway service, the
Metro Connections program, and current efforts to restructure service in an era of funding declines.
