    “Pomona Law Maker Wants Gold Line to Run to Claremont”

    Actually the proposed law (AB1600) allows the Gold Line to run through to Montclair, (and eventually Ontario Airport?) which is in San Bernardino County.  The only other Metro route that does this is the Disneyland bus (460), but that runs on infrastructure not owned and maintained by Metro.

    It looks like the bill creates a loophole which will allow Measure R monies raised by (regressive) sales tax in Los Angeles County to be used to pay for construction and operations in other counties in California.
