Update on Beeline 13 and Metro 201

Per previous announcements to Route 13 passengers, Route 13 (from downtown Glendale to Glenoaks Canyon) concluded service on Friday, December 9, 2011.  Metro was scheduled to extend Line 201 into Glenoaks Canyon beginning Monday, December 12, 2011.  Based on Metro’s suspended service change this weekend, Route 201 will not be operating the extension into Glenoaks Canyon as planned. Per the City’s request Southland will operate replacement service between the Glenoaks/Chevy Chase stop (Adventist Hospital) and the Gardner/Glenoaks stop (Canyon) on the same schedule as was planned with Metro – per yellow highlights.  Southland is being asked to coordinate morning departure times from the Glenoaks/Chevy Chase stop (Adventist Hospital) to collect passengers from the 201 bus; and coordinate afternoon trip times to return passengers to meet the outgoing Line 201 buses at the Glenoaks/Chevy Chase stop (Adventist Hospital).  Passengers may look for a small bus (cutaway) using “Special” for the headsign or “Route 13” on the window card.

Southland staff has agreed to operate the replacement service through December 30, 2011 or sooner.  We will work with Metro to determine how quickly the Line 201 extension can be implemented.  We will update you as soon as we know more.

Update on Restored Bus Service

We have gotten more information on the restored bus service. The current Beeline Route 13 will end on Friday, December 9th and the first day of the new line 201 will be on Monday, December 12th. There will be five trips into the canyon each weekday.

Bus Service to be Restored in Canyon

It appears that the MTA will be bringing bus service back into Glenoaks Canyon. According to comments made at the October 25th City Council Meeting, the bus route will be restored starting on December 11th for 5 or 6 trips per day. The City Council heard from many people in the canyon.  The result of our actions is a prime example of what we can do to affect change in our city. A big thank you to all of the canyon residents who wrote letters to the MTA and city council members and especially to Angie Vukos who kept the fight going.

This is great news for many people in the canyon who rely on public transportation.
