The Foothill Gold Line light rail line from Glendora to Montclair is in the final stages of being readied to break ground – extending the Los Angeles County rail system 12.3 more miles and including future stations in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. It is anticipated that the majority of funding needed to extend the line from its current terminus in Azusa to Montclair will come from Measure M (the Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan), a sales tax measure on the November 8, 2016 ballot. If approved by voters on November 8, the Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair will be one of the first of 40 major highway and transit projects to be funded by Measure M to break ground. The extension will take about six to eight years to build.
Each future Gold Line station is planned to have parking and include amenities for bicycles, walking and bus connections. The La Verne Station will have a total of 600 parking spaces dedicated to the station (see site plan below). Also below is a corridor map of the entire Gold Line corridor.
Once completed, the extension of the Foothill Gold Line will connect riders to two dozen universities, including the seven Claremont Colleges, the University of La Verne, and Cal Poly Pomona. Connections will also include the Los Angeles County Fairplex, Raging Waters, museums and historic sites, miles of local hiking and biking trails, several regional parks, and the Inland Empire via rail and bus connections at the future Montclair Station.
