The Gold Line is Coming to Glendora!
After years of planning, the construction of Metro's Foothill Gold Line extension from Glendora to Montclair is now under way. This project extends Metro's light rail service 12.3 miles with station stops in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. The project broke ground in December 2017 and is expected to be completed in early 2026.
History of the Gold Line
The first segment of the current Gold Line light rail line was completed in 2003 and originally spanned a short distance from Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles to Pasadena. In 2009 the first phase of the Gold Line Eastside Extension was opened extending the line from Union Station to Atlantic Boulevard near Monterey Park and, in 201,6 the second phase of the Foothill Extension was opened, bringing the line to the Azusa/Glendora border with the APU/Citrus College station ending the line.
With the passage of Measure M in 2016, Glendora will be opening its very own station. Measure M is anticipated to provide the majority of the funding necessary to complete the Los Angeles County portion of the next phase, with substantial completion of the project expected in early 2026.
Our goal is to keep you informed
The City and the Foothill Gold Line Extension Construction Authority are working together to help keep residents and community stakeholders informed as the project progresses. During the planning phase we hosted community meetings to discuss technical impacts that will most affect those who live or own property within 500 feet of the rail corridor.
