Metro Sign and Logo, Sepulveda Orange Line Station
This sign makes it clear that this is a Metro station. It also serves a decorative purpose.
Crosswalk and Approaching Bus
Riders wishing to travel eastbound must cross the busway from the parking lot to the opposite platform.
Local Transit Map
Other riders at the station may have transfered from the other bus lines shown on this map.
With the exception of the busway and lack of track, the station could pass as a light-rail station.
After a brief 5-minute wait, a bus has arrived. The bike rider can continue the remainder of her trip without a car.
A second bus follows close behind. Perhaps this was planned to accommodate capacity. However, these are non-peak hours. It is more likely that the first bus is running late or the second bus is early.
It is important to note the final destination of your bus. You do not want to board a bus travelling in the opposite direction.
Unusually Crowded Bus
This bus is not normally full at this time. Our class of over 20 people must have brought unwelcome change for the usual riders.
These televisions offer entertainment to riders. They play news programs, weather reports, trivia, and, of course, commercials.
Van Nuys Station Sign
It's good to know our bus is travelling east.
Minorities speaking a language other than English make up a large percentage of Metro ridership. Metro does a great job with bilingual outreach.
Another rider has just left the bus. Now one less person has to stand.
The buses seem a lot larger when they are empty.
Bike Rack and Lockers
Riders who do not wish to bring their bicycles on the remainder of their trip can utilize these racks and lockers. This is part of a larger effort to promote bicycling.
Local Transit Map
After riding the Orange Line, riders can transfer onto the Red Line or a local bus. Many riders board the Red Line to travel downtown.
Westbound Platform, North Hollywood Orange Line Station
Riders wishing to return west must board here. As is the case with all Metro Rail and Metro Liner stations, tickets are purchased using an honor system. Other than the occasional security sweep, riders are not asked to show proof of ticket purchase.
