Five San Gabriel Valley foothill communities are slated to receive their first Metro rail station sometime around 2026-27. Rather than wait for the new line to be built before considering how people will access the station, Metro has been working with each of the communities - Claremont, Pomona, San Dimas, La Verne, and Glendora - to develop first/last mile station access plans. To solicit public recommendations and feedback into this effort, five station area walks were hosted in September 2018. Information gathered from those events was the translated into a set of draft recommendations for each station.
Over the next six weeks the public will have an opportunity to weigh in on those draft recommendations at a series of public workshops. Each workshop will focus on one station, with an eye to refining ways to improve station access by foot, bike, skate, bus, car, wheelchair, and other modes of transportation.
Light refreshments will be provided! Hope to see you at one or more of these!
