El Monte Station


The new El Monte Station, which opened on October 14, 2012, was expanded to more than double its size, with a two-level bus terminal station with 29 bays. The state-of-the-art facility, the largest west of Chicago, is a major regional transfer center serving 22,000 Metro, Foothill Transit, El Monte Transit and Greyhound passengers daily, with the potential to accommodate nearly twice that capacity. The El Monte Station connects the San Gabriel Valley to Downtown LA and the rest of the Metro bus and rail system via the Metro Silver Line.

The station features a new transit store, where Metro and Foothill Transit fare media can be purchased, and a Metro ExpressLanes Customer Service Center to sign up for a FasTrak account and transponder to use on the Metro ExpressLanes . A sculpture by renowned artist Donald Lipski is incorporated in the new El Monte Station as part of Metro's public art program. "Time Piece" features three functional clocks suspended from a sweeping stainless steel arch using a web of thin stainless steel cables.

Metro Bike Hub

The El Monte Station will feature a brand new secure bicycle parking room to better serve multi-modal travelers. The Metro Bike Hub will open with parking for 60 bikes, a bike repair stand and bike pump, as well as controlled access and 24-hour security cameras. Users will need to register and pay a small fee to access the area - similar to Metro's bicycle locker program. Located in the south building near the station entrance, the new Metro Bike Hub is expected to open toward the end of the year and is the first of several similar facilities planned.
