  1. Why, if the Expo Line has Downtown Santa Monica, should the Gold Line have Azusa Downtown? Shouldn’t it be Downtown Azusa?

  2. I’m SO excited about the Gold line extension to Arcadia! The station is within 5 mins walking distance from my home & there are stations within 5 mins walking distance of both of my jobs! My poor 10 year old car will get to rest at least a few days a week! 🙂

  3. Ah come on, Metro.

    I was looking forward to a random selection of station names like Santa Anita, Myrtle, and Foothill.

  4. No Azusa Downtown/Ridley-Thomas or Duarte/City of Hope/Tom Bradley station? I’m very surprised. Thank you Metro for keeping things simple.
