Opening day of the MTA Orange Line at the North Hollywood Metro Red Line Park and Ride, located at 5350 Lankershim Blvd. This photo shows a side view of the new Orange Line bus, also known as the Metro Liner, which is painted silver and gray with orange wording. These buses are 20 feet longer than the standard 40-foot bus. Another way they differ from the regular buses? Metro Liners have "accordion" middles, and they are also equipped with three doors for faster boarding. MTA identifies all of its Metro Rail lines by assigning each line a different color. The Orange Line was formerly named San Fernando Metro Rapidway, but the MTA Board of Directors approved the new name on January 22, 2004, and it refers to the many citrus trees that once blanketed the San Fernando Valley. Metro Liner travels between the Warner Center and North Hollywood Metro Red Line subway station in approximately 42 minutes. Photo dated: October 29, 2005.
