The Arcadia Station is part of the future Foothill Extension from Pasadena to Azusa, currently underway. The station will be located on the northwest corner of North First Avenue and East Santa Clara Street, a short block away from the city’s main commercial area on Huntington Drive and adjacent to the city’s proposed transit plaza.
The station is planned to have a center platform, with the tracks on either side. Access to the station will be from the southeast end of the platforms via the corner of North First Avenue and East Santa Clara Street. A 300-car parking structure is planned directly west of the station and city’s transit plaza. Bicycle parking and lockers are also planned.

During 2006-7, the Construction Authority worked with the City of Arcadia (along with all other Foothill Extensions from Pasadena to Azusa and from Azusa to Montclair) to explore their visions for integrating transit oriented development (TOD) into future planning. Through that process, the city of Arcadia decided to focus its initial efforts on providing shuttles and other transportation connections to the major destinations and residential neighborhoods that already exist within the city.
As the Construction Authority and city begin a new dialogue through the 2010 TOD study just underway, the city may update their vision for the future.

The City of Arcadia is known for beautiful neighborhoods, warm character and a "community of homes" atmosphere. The City places great emphasis on preserving "green space" and its commitment to the environment is evidenced by the large population of healthy trees you will find around town.
Arcadians take pride in their well-established traditions and high standards. The Arcadia Unified School District is one of the most highly thought of in the state; high quality medical services are available locally; and an excellent assortment of recreation and leisure activities are offered for all ages (including the 127-acre Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Garden).
Arcadia has a broad commercial base with businesses ranging from the very small to the very large, including its regional mall Westfield Santa Anita and Santa Anita Park Racetrack.

The proposed art strategy is to engage and collaborate with station designers and stakeholders in developing a comprehensive art and design plan that creates a safe and exciting experience for the user from parking structure to station platform. The strategy considers various locations where this can occur:

Construction is underway on the Pasadena to Azusa Extension and is scheduled to be completed in September 2015, when it will be turned over to Metro for testing and pre-revenue service. Once construction is completed, the city of Arcadia will feature four bridge structures (I-210 Gold Line Bridge, Colorado Blvd., Santa Anita Ave., and Huntington Dr. Bridges), a 300 car parking facility and its own Gold Line Station. The City of Arcadia is one of the busiest construction zones along the Foothill Extension from Pasadena to Azusa project.
The following construction activities will take place in Arcadia over the next two years.*
