History of Valley Bus Transit Service


There are three types of links in the table. A link on a date will open a small window with a map of the line during that period of its history; a link on a line number will jump in the table to the referenced line to assist in tracing the history of a route.
The colored icons link to other pages on this site as follows:
Link to the page for a line changed during the San Fernando Valley Transit Restructuring Study.
/ Link to the page for a line changed around the extension of Metro Red Line service to the Valley.
Link to the page for a Northridge earthquake emergency service line.
Link to the page for a shuttle line from the original BDOF-operated "demonstration project".
Link to the page for a line created or changed as part of the Bus Riders Union "service expansion" project.
Link to the page detailing LADOT-operated Commuter Express lines.
