Metro Gold Line
The Metro Gold Line Construction Authority was formed in 1999 to design and build a light rail line from Los Angeles to Montclair. The first phase of the project was fully funded with state and local money at the beginning of construction and was completed on time and under budget. The first phase connects the cities of Los Angeles, South Pasadena and Pasadena. The Metro Gold Line links commuters to the regional transportation network at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles and opened to the public on July 26, 2003. More than 150,000 riders boarded Metro Gold Line trains during its first weekend of operation.
 

(Update: March 25, 2019)

The Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair (Project) is undergoing a supplemental environmental review and the public is invited to review the draft report and provide comment between now and May 6, 2019.

The Project includes a 12.3-mile extension of the Metro Gold Line light rail system from Azusa to Montclair, and the Construction Authority proposes to modify the existing approved Project (2013 FEIR as addended). Project Modifications evaluated in the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) include construction and operation of the Project in four phases, rather than two phases; relocating the Pomona Station parking facility from the north side of the station to the south side; and implementing a new mitigation measure that would widen White Avenue near the La Verne Station (from 1st Street to 6th Street in La Verne). The purpose of Draft SEIR is to evaluate through analysis, documentation, and discussion the proposed Project Modifications and to solicit public feedback. The Draft SEIR has concluded that one new significant unmitigable traffic impact will occur as a result of the proposed changes to the project, at the intersection of Glendora Ave/Route 66. All other impacts have been mitigated to less than significant levels.

You are invited to review and comment on the Draft SEIR and to attend the Public Meeting/Hearing hosted by the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority (Construction Authority):
