When it first opened in 2003 the Metro Gold Line provided a light rail connection from Pasadena to Union Station. Since then it has expended twice – on the south-east, to Atlantic Blvd. in East Los Angeles (2009) and then through portions of the San Gabriel Valley in 2016.

The Foothill Gold Line light rail project will extend Metro Gold Line service to the cities of Glendora, San Dimas La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. The project is funded by LA County’s Measure M & R, state grant and is seeking additional funding to fill the current shortfall. Major construction is expected to start in early 2020.

This presentation will give us a view of some of the opportunities and challenges presented by this extension, and allows time for questions to a spokesperson from the Gold Line Construction Authority.
