APU/Citrus College is an at-grade light rail station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system. It is located between Palm Drive and Citrus Avenue, a block north of Foothill Boulevard, in Azusa, California next to Citrus College and walking distance of Azusa Pacific University;[2] the station is currently being used as Metro Gold Line's new temporary terminal station.[3][4]

This station was constructed as part of the Gold Line Foothill Extension project Phase 2A, it began revenue service on March 5, 2016.[5][6]

Due to heavy rain in March 2016, the previously delayed underpass construction on N. Citrus Ave. was flooded. The Citrus Avenue extension and underpass was finally opened in September 2016.

Future Metro Rail service[edit]

The Gold Line will continue east to the future Montclair station as part of Phase 2B,[6] which will take another 8–9 years; projected completion is 2026-2027.

However, once the Regional Connector is completed, the Phase 2B extension and all Gold Line stations north of Union Station will become part of the Blue Line (soon to be renamed Line A).[7]

Bus connections[edit]

The City of Glendora offers a weekday shuttle service to this station.[9]
