We wanted to wish a huge thank you to all who attended our July Commuters of Glendale Meeting, and thank you to all of the great guest speakers that provided insightful updates on impactful projects in and around the Glendale area. We were happy to have seen so many people interested in how to make their commutes more sustainable throughout Glendale.
We would like to also extend a special thanks to all of our guest speakers who came out to speak to us about the latest changes going on in transportation around Glendale. With exciting developments occurring, such as Metro Micro, Metrolink, the NoHo-Pasadena BRT, and the Verdugo Wash project, the future of public transportation in Glendale is brighter than ever before. Additionally, with the Slow Streets and Al Fresco programs being slated to potentially become permanent in Glendale, a future with safe streets for all is closer than ever.
To give a quick overview of the meeting, various speakers came to give valuable information and updates on projects that are occurring around Glendale, both in progress and in the future. Adeline Chen of RideCo – the group that manages the new Metro Micro service in Glendale – and Patrick Chandler of Metro Community Relations spoke on the benefits of using Metro Micro to get around Glendale.
We then had Danielle Valentino and Tito Corona of LA Metro come to give updates on various Metro- and Metrolink-related projects throughout Glendale. There are substantial upgrades potentially coming to the Metrolink Antelope Valley line in the future, and the NoHo-Pasadena BRT Line is moving steadily through the environmental review process
Bradley Calvert of the Community Development Department of the City of Glendale then provided updates on various projects around the City of Glendale, such as the future Verdugo Wash Visioning project and updates to the Slow Streets and Al Fresco Dining programs.
We would again like to thank all of our fantastic members, stakeholders, commuters, and residents of the community for attending this latest virtual Commuters of Glendale meeting. We would also like to once again thank our guest speakers for providing us with their valuable knowledge and information, and we are excited to hear more from these projects soon!
