Foothill Gold Line holds conference

By Angela Stevens

On Friday, regional officials called for an extension of the Foothill Gold Line from cities near Cal Poly Pomona to San Bernardino County, offering an uncertain but possible benefit to campus commuting in the future.

The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority hosted the Foothill Gold Line State of the Project 2016 at Pomona College, where official spoke in support of to Los Angeles County Measure M.

The measure, on the November ballot, would facilitate extending the Foothill Gold Line to Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair.

One consideration is how the Gold Line might benefit Cal Poly Pomona though connections to a future station in Pomona. Though a shuttle system has been in talks, a decision has not been made.

The Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan would support commuter rail, transit operations and other projects, according to Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Albert Ho has agreed that an Oct. 18 article on the Gold Line extension should have read that Metro is proposing to have the new half-cent sales tax and the existing Measure R half-cent sales tax run indefinitely until voters decide to end them.
