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.The Monrovia station is part of the future Foothill Extension from Pasadena to Azusa, currently underway. The station will be located northwest of the intersection of Duarte Road and Myrtle Avenue, just west of the historic rail depot. Side platforms with access from the east end of the platform will provide flexibility to the City for future planned development (click on the Future Plans tab above to learn more) of the surrounding area.
A 350-space parking facility will be provided at the station, in addition to bicycle parking and lockers.
Although directly adjacent to the historic Santa Fe Depot, the Monrovia station does not include use of the historic structure. At this time, plans for the historic depot have not been finalized; however, the city of Monrovia intends to include the depot in the Station Square Transit Village.

Exciting future growth in the City of Monrovia is anticipated to occur in the Station Square Transit Village. This area is bounded by Evergreen Road to the north, Shamrock Avenue to the east, Duarte Road to the south, and Magnolia Avenue to the west.
There are three phases within Station Square Transit Village:
Station Square Transit Village is envisioned as interconnected neighborhoods of residences, commercial buildings (high-tech, bio-tech, lab and R&D), offices and hospitality uses (restaurants and hotel) with an emphasis on public space, green space, pedestrian friendly streetscapes, and transportation alternatives.
The heart of the development will encompass a transit hub including the new Monrovia station, a bus transfer terminal and supporting parking facilities. Additionally, the historic Santa Fe Depot (on site since 1926) will be restored and reopened as a transit store, restaurant or some other public use.

City of Monrovia
Monrovia’s small-town charm is reason enough to visit, but there's also plenty to delight and entertain the casual visitor to the community. More than 1,100 hotel rooms make Monrovia an easy and comfortable stop for business or pleasure. The quintessential charm of Old Town, which is the epitome of fine foods, fun and shopping pleasure at any time, is particularly exciting on Friday nights from March through Christmas when the Family Festival - the largest street fair of its kind in the state - takes over Myrtle Avenue. There throngs of residents and tourists crowd together for food, music, wares and kiddy rides. Of course many come just to visit Old Town's luxurious 12-screen Movie Palace with the largest screen in the San Gabriel Valley. Another popular location for avid shoppers is the Huntington Oaks Shopping Center, where the 210 Freeway meets Huntington Drive.
For fine dining, nothing beats the variety of foods to be found along Huntington Crossing's restaurant row. For the avid hiker there is the trail through riparian woodlands to a waterfall in Canyon Park. Monrovia is a welcoming destination for all seasons filled with nature, entertainment and culture.

Cha-Rie Tang will celebrate the coming together of Monrovia's architectural heritage with its naturally beautiful setting in River of Time. Incorporating a treasure trove of historical tiles and remnants of glass and rock, the artist creates a mountain and stream, reflecting Monrovia's designation as the "Gem City of the Foothills."
The seven foot tall mountain is sculptural rock and boulders, carved by nature over the millennia. Running water is a stream of glass, leading from mountain to river, which is composed of recognizable local and historical tiles.
Ms. Tang's desire to work directly with the community on this concept will bring together an appreciation of both human history and respect for nature.
*The Construction Authority would like to thank the following members of the Monrovia SDAR Committee for their participation in the selection process: Mr. Bill Beebe; The Honorable Joe Garcia; Mr. Tito Haes; Ms. Vicki Novell; The Honorable Becky Shevilin; and Mr. Coulter Winn.
