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

  2. Ah come on, Metro.

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

  3. 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! 🙂

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