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. The current line allows for travel from East Los Angeles through Union Station to Pasadena and back with stops in Little Tokyo, Boyle Heights and South Pasadena.
Soon the Gold Line will be coming to Glendora with the opening of the Foothill Gold Line Extension Phase 2A which will extend the line from the current terminus at Sierra Madre Station in Pasadena to the Citrus/APU Station located at the Azusa/Glendora border at the north end of Citrus Avenue.
As we move even further into the future it is anticipated that the City of Glendora will open its very own station in the year 2023. Although this may seem a long ways away, work has already begun to plan and design the new line and the stations that will be a part of the extension to the eastern end of Los Angeles County.

Phase 2B Open Houses
The Foothill Gold Line hosted community meetings in April and May of 2015 to share the latest information on the light rail project from Azusa to Montclair. The Glendora meeting was extremely well attended and we thank you for coming out to learn more about the project and to speak with and provide feedback to the artists on the design and art component for each station.
Stay tuned for more information about future open houses and Phase 2B project progress!
