The Glendora Community Services Department will begin a pilot shuttle program that will serve community members seeking a public transit alternative around town.
The Glendora Express shuttle will begin its pilot program June 1 and last until Aug. 21. A single 25-passenger shuttle will take riders in a counter-clockwise loop to various business centers and city facilities.
At least 11 different stops are planned with the shuttle running every 30 minutes from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Riders can board for 50 cents and will be able to pay with cash or with Glendora Mini Bus coupons, which are available at the Transportation Center, 410 E. Dalton Ave.
City Staff conceived of the Glendora Express due to a demand for such a program after the implementation of the city’s Metrolink commuter shuttles and teen shuttles.
City Staff envision an expansion of the Glendora Shuttle to be incorporated with the future Gold Line Foothill Extension’s Citrus College Station.
The pilot program was approved as part of the consent calendar of items during the Thursday, May 21 Community Services Commission meeting.
