The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension will extend the existing Gold Line east from Pasadena. The first phase will travel more than 11 miles from Sierra Madre Villa Station, with stations in the cities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa.

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, with stops in the cities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. Funding is currently being sought for this segment between Azusa and Montclair. 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.
