In response to the increased demand of Gold Line commuters coming from east of Azusa, Foothill Transit is proposing changes to its existing Montclair-to-Pasadena express bus Line 690 to provide Gold Line commuters an alternative way to connect to the Azusa Downtown Station without having to drive and park.
The proposed changes would:
- Terminate the bus line at the Azusa Intermodal Transit Center (right next to the Azusa Downtown Gold Line Station)
- Change the line from an express line to a local line (Foothill Transit is currently working on finalizing the new alignment)
- Lower the base fare for this line to $1.25
- Introduce round-trip service between Montclair and Azusa
