One Plan Suggest to Replace Gold Line Ext. with Metrolink
Pasadena Blog, Under the Dome, has found that there is an alternative plan/idea to expand the Gold Line out to Claremont. Instead of light rail, as we know the Gold Line today, the extension would be Metrolink. From reporter Dan Abendschein: "An alternative plan, said Snoble, would be to build the Gold Line as far as Azusa/Glendora, then build a heavy rail Metrolink line from there to Claremont to link the Gold Line to existing Metrolink lines. That would be more cost-effective, said Snoble, because light rail is more expensive to power with an electric system than a fuel-based one."
