REGULAR BOARD MEETING
SEPTEMBER 28, 2017

Preamble
Motion by:

SOLIS, BARGER, FASANA AND NAJARIAN

September 28, 2017

Relating to Item 21, File ID 2017-0525
Claremont Gold Line & Metrolink Shared Station

The Foothill Gold Line and the Metrolink San Bernardino Line include three co-located Metrolink and Gold Line Stations - North Pomona, Claremont and Montclair - within a couple miles of each other. Construction of the Gold Line requires demolition of the existing Claremont Metrolink station and rebuilding a new one, which then presents the option of forgoing the Claremont Metrolink station altogether. This option offers a shorter commute time on the Metrolink San Bernardino Line while the Gold Line provides more frequent light rail service and would reduce construction costs for the Gold Line extension.

A decision to maintain or remove the Metrolink station in the City of Claremont is critically urgent to avoid delays and cost overruns associated with construction of the Foothill Gold Line Phase 2B extension to Claremont / Montclair.
