The La Cañada Flintridge City Council on Tuesday approved changes to the LCF Shuttle route that would connect riders to the Montrose Shopping Park.
The LCF Shuttle currently makes its westerly turnaround by traveling north on Ocean View Boulevard, east on Cross Street and south on Castle Road before returning to Foothill Boulevard, said Carl Alameda, a senior management analyst with the city.
After receiving complaints from residents, staff began working with the city of Glendale Traffic and Transportation Division to explore alternative routes, Alameda said. The option chosen was remapping the turnaround loop to run south on Ocean View Boulevard, east on Broadview Drive, northwest on Montrose Avenue and north again on Ocean View.
"The unique thing about this [option] is currently the Glendale system and their different routes do not service any of the area that is east of Ocean View, so you are bringing service to this retail district," Alameda said. "You can link it with downtown La Cañada Flintridge at Foothill Boulevard and potentially capture business for our local businesses."
