Commuters for Better DASH Service in Chatsworth sign now


The proposed 2008 Regional Transportation Plan for Southern California is currently within a public comment period. Its title "Making the Connections" is appropriate for the subject of this petition. We understand that LADOT is committed to improving the convenience, reliability, safety, and speed of Los Angeles transportation system. We hope that you will consider the following to that end.

Staff of the California Department of Toxic Substances Control and employees of neighboring businesses who utilize the Metrolink Northridge Station have had difficulty getting to and from their offices due to a problem with the tardiness or absence of DASH services.

Specifically speaking, the last morning Metro into Northridge arrives at 9:28 a.m. For reasons unknown, the last morning DASH that services our business area leaves the station six minutes BEFORE the train arrives (at 9:22 a.m.), leaving those departing the train at 9:28 a.m. without a connection to their offices.

The evening DASH service is equally inefficient. The bus that is scheduled to stop near our office at Oakdale Avenue and Prairie at 5:13 p.m. is never on time which has severe consequences for people who plan to ride the LAST train of the evening (5:30 p.m.). According to your schedule, the 5:13 bus is meant to get passengers to the train station in time for the 5:30 train, but apparently it rarely does.

We have attempted to inform you of these issues by calling the DASH hotline, however, the response we receive is that we should ride the earlier bus. The earlier bus, unfortunately, does not accommodate work hours for a lot of us. Also, catching the earlier bus leaves us standing at the station waiting for the train for up to 40 minutes which doesn't seem safe considering: 1) the surrounding neighborhood is questionable, 2) the station is isolated and without shelter to guard against the weather.

We ask that the DASH offer more service during peak commuter hours. We also ask that buses arrive on time. Finally, we request that the DASH and the Metrolink do a better job coordinating their schedules which will significantly maximize our resources.
