Two routes are under consideration for this phase

Two routes are under consideration for this phase
The Gold Line Eastside Extension just opened last November, but Metro is already working on extending the line even further from its East L.A. terminus (and not to be confused with the Gold Line's Foothill Extension, which will break ground this summer continuing it east from Pasadena). Someday, L.A. County residents could be hitting the rails to South El Monte or down to Whittier.

In January 2009, Metro was considering four routes, but has whittled them down to two, along with the options of doing nothing or improving bus service in the area. In order for them to proceed, they must meet with the public and gather input about the current plan. Meetings are scheduled for next week:

Monday, February 22
Pio Pico Women’s Center
6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
