CLAREMONT >> The Metrolink station in Claremont is staying – at least that’s the recommendation by Metro’s staff.
The Los Angeles County’s transportation authority’s Planning and Programming committee will discuss the direction by staff at a Jan. 17 meeting.
The agenda for the meeting, released Thursday, states the agency is asking to “proceed with a staff-level task force to provide recommendations on how Metrolink and Gold Line Phase 2B and other transit services will complement each other to provide greater transit services to the surrounding communities along the shared rail corridor.”
Thursday’s news validates residents’ support for the stop, said Councilman Sam Pedroza.
“I’m hoping the board will concur,” he said, referring to the fact that the committee’s vote will have to go to the full board for approval.
