Glendale City Council members Tuesday voted to spend $100,000 toward a study of potential light- rail routes through Glendale.
The Los Angeles County Transportation Commission will conduct the study, which will cost $200,000, and pay the remaining $100,000.
Council members voted 4 to 0 to approve the funding. Councilman Carl W. Raggio was absent from the meeting.
City officials have been looking at several possible routes through Glendale, said Kerry Morford, senior executive assistant of public works.
Included is a route that travels from Union Station in Los Angeles north on the Glendale Freeway to the Ventura Freeway, then west to San Fernando Road. Another route would also begin in Los Angeles and follow Southern Pacific Railroad's right of way along San Fernando Road, Morford said.
