Project Description:

Foothill Transit, a joint powers authority of 21-member cities in the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys and the County of Los Angeles, was created in 1988 after the former Southern California Rapid Transit District (RTD) announced service cuts and fare increases that would negatively impact the San Gabriel Valley. In an effort to provide better public transportation options for the community while reducing costs and improving local control, the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission (LACTC) approved Foothill Transit’s application to assume operation of 14 lines which were operated by the RTD. Foothill Transit now operates 36 fixed-route local, express and rail-feeder lines, covers 327 square miles, and serves 15 million customers each year. This number is up from 9.5 million at the time of Foothill Transit’s original application. In its continuous effort to expand its service, Foothill Transit is extending its Foothill Transit Arcadia/Irwindale Facility.
