PASADENA, Calif. (KABC) --The new Metro Gold Line expansion, an 11-mile rail line connecting from Pasadena to Azusa, begins service Saturday.
It is the first rail line to open to the public funded by the 2008 Measure R sales tax. When service starts, Metro will offer free rides to customers from noon until midnight for the extension.
Trains are set to run every 12 minutes. The expansion was created to divert traffic from the heavily congested 210 Freeway.
