The new name for the city's bus service is San Fernando Mission Transit. The city held a contest and reviewed more than 60 submissions from the public to rename the old dial-a-ride service. But the winning submission--Mission City Transit--was too similar to the name of another city's bus service, officials said. So at a City Council meeting held Monday, the council came up with its own name.

A reconfigured shuttle service is offering residents improved access to the city's shopping district and more convenient connections to Metrolink, city officials announced. Under the new system, one of the city's two low-cost Dial-A-Ride shuttle buses will operate on a fixed route during peak commuting hours. The change was made to coincide with train arrivals at the San Fernando-Sylmar Metrolink station, said Recreation and Community Services Director Ed Montan.

The city of San Fernando's new bus service won't be named the following: Speedy Ride, The Golden Thumb, Get Around, Wheels on Fire, Hot Wheels, Mission People-Mover or The Sea Gull. Those were among the 80 names rejected by a city parks commission in a contest to pick a new name for the 12-year-old bus service presently known as Dial-a-Ride. City officials recently announced the retirement of two aging Dial-a-Ride buses and the purchase of two new ones.

The California Transportation Commission has approved $1.7 million to complete construction of a Metrolink station to serve Sylmar and San Fernando. Construction of the station on Hubbard Street near 1st Street has been delayed for several months because of stalled real estate negotiations. The station should be completed by July. The stop is along the Metrolink line that connects downtown Los Angeles to Santa Clarita.

The 12-year-old San Fernando Dial-a-Ride bus service is about to get a make-over and a new name. According to Ed Montan, director of the city's Recreation and Community Services Department, two new buses will arrive within a few days to replace the city's two aging Dial-a-Ride buses. The new buses are expected to be placed into service in February. Meantime, Tuesday is the deadline for entries in the city-sponsored contest to name the service.

The San Fernando Recreation and Community Services Commission will take public comment tonight at City Hall on the possible expansion of the community's Dial-A-Ride program. The program provides what is called demand/response service to the community's elderly and handicapped who may lack transportation. Currently, San Fernando residents can call the Dial-A-Ride dispatcher and reserve a place in one of the program's vans for shopping trips or transportation to medical appointments.

The city of San Fernando is drawing up plans to build a three-mile-long network of bicycle paths along two waterways and the Metrolink railroad tracks. If planners have their way--and someone comes up with funding--paths will follow the Pacoima and East Canyon washes, linking a major shopping district on Foothill Boulevard with the downtown civic center and mall, said Jerry Wedding, San Fernando's city engineer.
