GLENDALE — Bus riders could soon see some major changes to Glendale Beeline routes — and pay 25 cents more for the ride. City officials have proposed to increase fares by 25 cents, change some bus service route intervals, add and extend bus routes for efficiency, discontinue the downtown to Glenoaks Canyon route and other stops, and discontinue the practice of accepting Metro passes and the “10-trip card.” The changes were suggested to control costs because sales tax revenue has dropped since the recession, hitting the system hard because it is not supported by the city’s general fund, Beeline Transit Manager Kathyrn Engel said at Tuesday’s Transportation and Parking Commission meeting.

One an accident, two is a danger. After a second Beeline fire in two days, the city quickly pulled all of its propane-powered buses off their routes. The aging buses will be checked out before being put back into service. The city did the right thing at the end of last week in promptly taking the 11 buses off the streets -- half of the city's fleet -- but where the city's efficiency really paid off for commuters is in continuing service. Glendale arranged for diesel and natural-gas powered buses to be put on the routes Monday.

I would like to see an attorney sue the pants off of MTA for allowing the strike to happen. I don't understand why on Earth the mayor of Los Angeles or the governor can't put a stop to all this, considering the fact that there are people losing jobs and losing pay over this. It is not right that people have to walk 10 miles just to get to work. Since I knew about this strike since February from one of the bus drivers, MTA could have settled all this long before now. If they don't want to settle and have this reoccur, I think the best thing is sue the pants off of MTA or have each city have their own bus routes that would meet up with the next city.

ON THE AGENDA The following items will be considered at Tuesday's Glendale City Council meeting: AT-GRADE RAIL CROSSINGS The City Council is slated to vote on whether to improve at-grade railroad crossings at Grandview and Sonora avenues. The safety enhancements at the two crossings would include new "no left turn" and "no right turn" signs, an advanced traffic pre-emption system, raised medians and new flasher gates. There would also be various structural changes to Grandview Avenue, including it being widened between Air Way and San Fernando Road.

Gary Moskowitz The school board requested a report from district officials Tuesday that will explore how much revenue the district could possibly earn by selling its Professional Development Center. While reviewing a "menu" of $7 million worth of budget reductions and considerations proposed by Supt. Jim Brown, board member Greg Krikorian suggested the district look into the sale of the building as a possible source of revenue. The building, located at the intersection of Central Avenue and Myrtle Street, is used for teacher-training purposes.

GLENDALE — Officials this week unveiled the largest expansion of Metro Rapid Line bus routes in Los Angeles County history, which includes one line set to run through Burbank and Glendale. Six new lines slated to service a wide swath of the city and county will begin Monday, including line 794, which includes stops along Brand Boulevard and San Fernando Road. City and transportation officials have heralded the announcement, made on Wednesday by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials, as a step forward amid increased gas prices and worsening traffic.

The school day started in a Carl’s Jr. for 14-year-old Armil Allahyarian, who was waiting at 6:54 a.m. Tuesday for a yellow bus to shuttle him to Clark Magnet High School — his gateway to the most advanced science and technology instruction around, he said. It was an earlier start than he might have had if he attended nearby Hoover High School, but he said it was worth losing some sleep to get to Clark, where teachers have established a tradition of creating innovative lessons that often involve laptop computers, advanced software and other cutting-edge technology.

Robert Chacon The City Council Tuesday approved a bus route that struck a balance between the needs of bus-weary residents and business owners near Kenneth Village. The council unanimously approved a new path for Beeline Route 7, which included a new loop through the Kenneth Village business district. The council's nod follows the Traffic and Parking Commission's recommendation and overwhelming support by residents for a bus route that would avoid narrow residential streets.

Marianne Love GLENDALE -- The transfer of Metropolitan Transportation Line 177 to La Canada Flintridge and Glendale went off without a hitch. Now called Route 3, bus service takes riders from Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada Flintridge to the Glendale Galleria as part of the Glendale Beeline system. Buses run every 30 minutes between the Glendale Galleria and JPL. Sections between the mall and Glendale Community College will offer service every 15 minutes.

CITY HALL — Public transit to Glenoaks Canyon will change once again after the City Council on Tuesday — citing consistently low ridership numbers — unanimously approved a scaled-back service plan. The new plan is the third service change since December, when the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority eliminated the canyon route, citing low ridership along the one-mile portion of Glenoaks Boulevard. Since then, a city Beeline bus has been providing 20 to 30 passenger trips per day for the route, but persistently low ridership has made even that service financially infeasible, traffic administrators say. The latest plan will eliminate Beeline service and use a smaller transit vehicle to service the canyon at five regularly scheduled times throughout the day. Residents who qualify for Dial-A-Ride service can schedule the free service for appointments that fall outside of the predetermined route, according to the plan approved by the council.

MONTROSE — After some speculation about whether their local bus service would be stopped, Montrose residents can rest at ease knowing that the city's Beeline will continue service on Honolulu Avenue, through the Montrose Shopping Park and into La Crescenta. Though the city had looked at shutting down this portion of the Beeline Route 3, outcry from the community spurred officials to take a second look at bus ridership, and they decided to keep service in the area. "Here, the residents and business both spoke together and the city listened and took steps to satisfy the needs of the citizens," said Montrose Shopping Park Assn.
