At the meetings, which are being held next month in North Hollywood, Pasadena, Eagle Rock, Burbank and Glendale, Interested members of the public can learn about the project and provide input for the project’s upcoming environmental impact report.

The $267-million, 18-mile project aims to build a Bus Rapid Transit line that would connect the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys, traveling east-west between the North Hollywood Station and Pasadena City College with stops in downtown Burbank and Glendale.
