The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension is extending the existing Gold Line east from Pasadena. The first phase will travel more than 11 miles from Sierra Madre Villa Station to Azusa.

Phase 1 includes new stations at:

  • Arcadia
  • Monrovia
  • Duarte/City of Hope
  • Irwindale
  • Azusa Downtown
  • APU/Citrus College

The Foothill Extension Construction Authority expects to complete construction between Pasadena and Azusa in September 2015. Metro is scheduled to begin safety testing in late 2015 with a projected opening in 2016.

The second phase will continue the line for 12 miles east from Azusa to Montclair. Funding is currently being sought for this segment. The Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement for the Azusa to Montclair section was certified in March 2013 and preliminary engineering began in Summer 2014.

Phase 2 includes new stations at:

  • Glendora
  • San Dimas
  • La Verne
  • Pomona
  • Claremont
  • Montclair
