What: Congressman Brad Sherman and Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch Englander will join California State University, Northridge President Dianne F. Harrison and other university officials as they celebrate the addition of a new transit station to the Northridge campus.
The new transit station will serve university students, staff, faculty and the community. At the moment, four bus lines run out of the station: Metro bus lines 167 (Plummer Street) and 741 (Reseda Rapid), Antelope Valley Transit Authority’s (ATVA) 787 Express and the CSUN Metrolink Shuttle. Transit and university officials said they hope to add more lines in the future. Construction of the new station cost approximately $490,000, with most of the funding coming from a grant from Federal Transit Administration.
Hundreds of university students, faculty and staff members commute to the campus using Metro bus lines, Metrolink trains and AVTA during the academic year.
