Beeline Bus Service Into Glenoaks Canyon May Be Discontinued

We have just received information advising us that the Glendale Traffic & Transportation Department held a meeting regarding Beeline service in Glendale.  They are recommending that our shuttle into Glenoaks Canyon, Beeline #13, be discontinued. To avoid this loss of transportation, our suggestions are to either continue the current service of  Beeline #13, restore Metro Line 201 service up the canyon or, at a minimum, schedule a short connection to the Metro Line 201 at Chevy Chase and Glenoaks. Without one of these options, our canyon will be without any public transportation, cutting off vital transportation options for residents, housekeepers, nannies, and others that work and live in our canyon and rely on public transportation.  By the way, Metro Service is provided at no cost to the city of Glendale.

We strongly recommend that you please e-mail both and as soon as possible because they are keeping a record and counting comments received from us regarding Beeline # 13 and Metro Line 201 which will have  a bearing on their final decision.

When they make a decision, their recommendations will be presented to the Glendale City Council.  Therefore we also urge you to contact the City Council to become involved in this matter. Councilman Ara Najarian is on the Metro Board and former Mayor Larry Zarian is on the State Transportation Department. Email addresses of our Mayor and Councilmen are:,,, and  The City of Glendale Traffic and Transportation Department is located at 633 E. Broadway, Room 300, Glendale, CA 91206,  (818) 548-3960 in case you wish to contact them directly.

We are 760 homes in this canyon with a population of about 2500.  If we do not take action now, we will possibly lose our public transportation forever.  This will have a devastating impact on our students, seniors and our community.

If you have any questions, kindly call Angela Vukos at (818) 247-2781.  Thank you.
