LOS ANGELES PIONEERS EXCLUSIVE BUSWAY

The Southern California Rapid Transit District has constructed a grade-separated bus transit system extending 11 miles through the San Gabriel Valley corridor. This Busway has the potential for even greater passenger capacity since the lanes could be easily converted to rail rapid transit at a relatively minor cost as future patronage and environmental needs warrant. Southern Pacific right-of-way adjacent to a major freeway provided space for the Busway, and relocation and elevation of the railroad was a major part of the overall project. Five years of negotiations and cooperation between a multitude of agencies and government bodies preceded the construction.
