The Foothill Extension project extends the Metro L Line (Gold) from its current endpoint at Azusa/Citrus Station east to serve more of the San Gabriel Valley.
Location: San Gabriel Valley
Type: Better Transit
Forecasted Opening: 2025-2028
Metro’s plan for better transit includes the Foothill Extension project, which will bring more travel options and access to opportunities to the San Gabriel Valley. The extension will provide 12.3 miles of new rail to the east beyond the current end point of the L Line in Azusa, and add stations in the cities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair.
Metro Rail from Glendora to Pomona is currently under construction by an independent agency known as the Foothill Gold Line Extension Construction Authority and is expected to be completed by 2025. Extension of the rail service further east from Pomona to Montclair will be completed by 2028.
