Welcome to the San Fernando Valley Transit Insider!
Our mission is to provide the history of transit service in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, as well as perspective on that history. We hope that for the researcher, we will be a useful resource; for the transit fan or public transportation advocate, a reference source; and for those who have previously lived in the Valley, a nostalgic look at how transit service evolved over more than a century.
We also provide current transportation news in the region and other pertinent information, for your convenience.
