Doug Tessitor, City Councilman for the City of Glendora, talks about his city’s excitement and anxious wait over the arrival of the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension, the transit-oriented development plans awaiting the extension, why Glendora’s residents need the Foothill Extension, and a message for the Metro Board.
“I ride the existing Gold Line everyday to work and any time I need to go to downtown L.A. The dream is to be able to use the train the whole way to and from work (and play). We can be so much better with the line extended!”
“Please stop ignoring a ‘shovel ready’ project!
We have to drive to the end of the line, but enjoy using the Gold Line to go into L.A. Parking is a problem as so many IE (Inland Empire) people drive and ride. It will be great when it’s out in our own community. We would use it to go to Pasadena!”
