The big Sherman Oaks news in regards to MTA is the 734 Metro Rapid running up and down Sepulveda Blvd. between Sherman Oaks and Sylmar. MetroRiderLA gives it a test run:
Close to Ventura Boulevard, Sepulveda turns to apartments, and the bus turns around via Magnolia Boulevard, Kester Avenue and Ventura Boulevard to layover across from the Sherman Oaks Galleria. The trip was reasonably quick. The entire route took about 35 minutes.
Meanwhile, the other two Sherman Oaks Rapid's will see larger buses:
- Metro Rapid Line 761 (Van Nuys Blvd.) "will see new 60-foot articulated buses"
- Metro Rapid Line 750 (Ventura Blvd.) will have new 45-foot high capacity buses
