SAN GABRIEL VALLEY TRANSIT FEASIBILITY STUDY | THE STUDY
The San Gabriel Valley has over two million residents and covers more than 374 square miles. Bordered by Los Angeles to the west, San Bernardino County to the east, the San Gabriel Mountains to the north and the hills south of State Route (SR) 60 to the south, this diverse and expansive area includes densely populated cities, employment centers, and residential areas.
For the purposes of this project, there are two different focus areas within the Study Area Boundary. The Focus Area for Integration of Services will leverage existing assets such as the Metro L Line (Gold) to integrate with connecting services. The Focus Area for New Services targets areas that may be currently underserved and lacking in high-quality frequent transit service. The Focus Area for New Services includes the I-10 and SR-60 corridors, which both serve as vital east/east corridors through the San Gabriel Valley.
The study commenced in July 2021 and is expected to be completed in May 2022.
