Upcoming Metro Community Events: Gold Line First Last Mile Walk Audits

Note: These events are being hosted by Metro and the Foothill Gold Line corridor cities from Glendora to Claremont. For more information or questions about these events, contact the Metro First/Last Mile Team at firstlastmile@metro.net or visit https://www.metro.net/projects/first-last/.


Metro and the cities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona and Claremont invite you to join them for a series of Community Walk Audits over the next two weeks. In each Community Walk Audit, attendees and stakeholders will walk together, evaluate the current environment, and envision how to improve access to the future Foothill Gold Line stations.

This event is an integral part of the development of a First/Last Mile Plan for the Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair. The 12.3-mile Gold Line extension will add stations in the cities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair, and the First/Last Mile Plan will identify pathways and physical improvements which will help people walk to, bike to and otherwise access the future stations.

The events will consist of an introduction to the walk audit, an approximately one-hour walk, and a debrief and survey at the end. The walk will cover one to two miles and may occur during hot weather, so it is recommended to wear comfortable shoes and hats or apply sunblock as necessary. Water and refreshments will be provided by the project team.

Parking is available onsite. Walking, biking or using bus transportation to reach the event is also encouraged.
