Assemblymember Chris Holden (AD – 41) introduced legislation, Assembly Bill 2011, that would lay the groundwork to extend the Metro Gold Line all the way to Ontario Airport.
“Light-rail is playing a critical role in reducing our carbon footprint, improving air quality, and connecting communities throughout the region,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden. “These benefits will expand into San Bernardino County once the Metro Gold Line Extension to Montclair is completed, and have a greater impact if extended to Ontario Airport.”
The current Metro Gold Line extension is already set to reach San Bernardino County with new stations in the cities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont, and Montclair. The current terminus planned for Montclair, however, is just six miles short of the Ontario International Airport – a critical airport and economic driver for San Bernardino, Riverside, and parts of Los Angeles Counties.
