The Gold Line is Coming to Glendora!
History of the Gold Line
The first segment of the current Gold Line light rail line was completed in 2003 and originally spanned a short distance from Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles to Pasadena. In 2009 the first phase of the Gold Line Eastside Extension was opened extending the line from Union Station to Atlantic Boulevard near Monterey Park and in 2016 the second phase of the Foothill Extension was opened, bringing the line to the Azusa/Glendora border with the APU/Citrus College station ending the line.
With the passing of Measure M in 2016, Glendora will be opening its very own station. Measure M is anticipated to provide the majority of the funding necessary to complete the Los Angeles County portion of the next phase, with substantial completion of the project expected in late-2025/early 2026. Although this may seem a long ways away, work has already begun to plan, design and build the new line and the stations that will be a part of the extension to the eastern end of Los Angeles County.
Our goal is to keep you informed...
Over the next couple of years the City and Gold Line Authority will be working together to keep you, the Community, informed. We recently hosted two Community Meetings to discuss technical impacts that will most effect those who live or own property within 500ft of the rail corridor. Click the links below for videos from each meeting as well as project update videos from the Gold Line Authority.

Building the Gold Line - Glendora to Montclair
Join us for a Community Open House!
The Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair is breaking ground in October 2017. Ahead of the groundbreaking, the Construction Authority is hosting community meetings in July and August to share the latest information on the 12.3-mile, six-station Foothill Gold Line light rail project. Attend a community information meeting to learn the latest about the Project’s timeline, what to expect during construction, the latest station and parking plans, public art and how to stay updated. All meetings will display the same information, so attend the one that is most convenient for you.
These are open house meetings, so arrive at any time and stay as long as you like. No presentations are planned; but project representatives will be available to answer questions.
