HOW WE ARE FUNDED
The Transportation Division is funded by a few sources. The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) distributes Local Return funding via four 1/2 cent sales tax measures: Proposition A, which are funds dedicated exclusively to benefit public transit; Proposition C, funds that are dedicated to benefit public & active transit; Measure R and Measure M, funds that can be applied to an even broader range of transportation projects and programs.
We also receive funding from South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) via its AB 2766 Motor Vehicle Subvention Program. A portion of DMV vehicle registration fees are distributed to Cities on a per capita basis to encourage programs that reduce congestion and improve air quality for the region.
We cover everything from buses to trains to walking, biking and rolling...
GLENDORA URBAN TRAIL SYSTEM
The San Dimas Wash Urban Trail is the first of three trails the city is developing in response to resident input on Glendora's Parks and Trails Master Plan. This pilot project is a three-mile, eight-foot wide asphalt bicycle trail that will have two, two-foot wide natural surface walking areas on each side. Construction is slated to begin in early 2018 and will be done three phases:
- Phase I - Louie Pompei Park to Sunflower Avenue
- Phase II - East Gladstone Street to Juanita Avenue
- Phase III - Juanita Avenue to Grand Avenue
In addition to providing health and recreation benefits, the trail will enhance access to neighborhoods along the trail route at residential street intersections, and provide planting and mural opportunities at commercial buildings near Grand Avenue.

SAN GABRIEL VALLEY ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION INITIATIVE
The San Gabriel Valley Active Transportation Initiative is a multi-jurisdictional partnership among the cities of Glendora, Duarte, Irwindale, La Puente, Monrovia and Montebello, and the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments. The program has five major components:
- Active Transportation Plans to provide the participating communities with their first bicycle and pedestrian master plans
- Regional Greenway Network Plan to study the 80 miles of undeveloped storm channels and washes that cross the San Gabriel Valley
- Regional Wayfinding Signage to design signage and a plan to link existing, in development, and proposed city level bicycle routes in the San Gabriel Valley
- Evaluation to collect robust data on bicycle and pedestrian data in the participating communities along existing regional county-controlled bikeways
- Education and Encouragement to provide residents in participating communities with free bicycle safety and maintenance education
ARROW HIGHWAY REGIONAL CORRIDOR PLAN
The Multi-modal Regional Corridor Plan for Arrow Highway is a plan that will develop recommendations for bicycle and pedestrian enhancements to improve mobility and safety across five cities: Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, and Claremont. The recommendations are shaped by public input, relevant data, and best practices.
BICYCLE FRIENDLY BUSINESS DISTRICT
Glendora participates in the Bicycle Friendly Business District (BFBD) program, designed to encourage healthier, more sustainable and vibrant communities by promoting the use of bicycles for short trips to businesses and workplaces. Encouraging people to frequent commercial corridors on foot, bike and transit can be an effective way to increase local economic activity. In Los Angeles County, studies have shown that businesses that actively engaged with participants attending bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly community events saw increases in sales. Other benefits for businesses include:
- Free Marketing on BFBD promotional materials
- More/New Customers - "Bike Local/Buy Local"
- Request-a-Bicycle-Rack program for participating businesses, while supplies last
- Free up car parking for driving customers
- Healthier, Happier Communities
While there is no direct cost, participating businesses are asked to help encourage bicycling by committing to the following for at least 12 months:
- Support local bicycle education and outreach efforts by sharing messaging and notices on social media, posting flyers, etc.
- Display a BFBD window cling or poster to advertise program participation
- Offer at least one (1) incentive or service to encourage customers and employees to bike, such as discounts on purchases, free item or service with purchase, or public bicycle accommodations

SGV REGIONAL GREENWAY NETWORK
The San Gabriel Valley has dozens of storm channels, washes, and creeks that feed into the San Gabriel and Rio Hondo Rivers. Most of them are well suited for Class I off-street, multi-use paths that can be used by the Community for walking, biking and rolling.
Driven by the input of community members and stakeholders like you, BikeSGV, a local non-profit championing the efforts to create a cohesive network of people-friendly streets in the San Gabriel Valley, launched the SGV Greenway Network 2025 Initiative in 2014, setting a goal of 50 miles of new greenway in a decade.
Glendora has the opportunity to utilize three different flood control channels, the San Dimas Wash, Big Dalton and Little Dalton Wash, to create an extensive network of multi-use trails within our own City boundary! These trails continue on through neighboring jurisdictions and could be the start to a regionally connected network of trails that would provide recreation and commuting opportunities.
Help us build support for this great effort to bring trails into our City and to continue to build the network for the region!
