Azusa to Montclair

Glendora San Dimas La Verne Pomona Claremont Montclair

The Foothill Gold Line from Azusa to Montclair will extend the Metro Gold Line 12.3 miles and add six (6) stations in the cities of  Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont, and Montclair. As with Pasadena to Azusa, the extension from Azusa to Montclair is planned to be built along the former Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe (ATSF) right-of-way, which was purchased by Metro in the early 1990s for the project.

Once completed, a trip from Montclair to downtown Pasadena will take just over 40 minutes and further to Los Angeles will take approximately 75 minutes.

Planning for the Azusa to Montclair Extension began in 2003, and significant work has been completed for the segment. The Final EIR was certified by the Construction Authority Board of Directors in March 2013, and a locally preferred alternative was selected. Starting in early 2014, the project will begin advanced conceptual engineering. This two-year process will advance design for the project to a point where it will be ready for a design-build procurement.

Completion of the Azusa to Montclair segment of the Foothill Gold Line will cost approximately $1 billion. No funding has been secured for this segment of the extension. Once funding is secured, final design and construction will take approximately four years to complete.
