The City of Montclair occupies a power position between Los Angeles County and the Inland Empire. Set squarely between the two on the I-10 and I-210 travel corridor, Montclair benefits from both the dynamic business environment of Los Angeles and the fast-growing markets of the Inland Empire. This premier location is the foundation for Montclair’s established position as a retail and business powerhouse and regional community leader.

Located in north Montclair is the Montclair Transcenter, a multimodal transportation facility located along Richton Street, just east of Monte Vista Avenue. The 20-acre Transcenter is the largest such facility between Union Station in Los Angeles and San Bernardino station. The Transcenter is a master planned regional transportation hub, with a regional Metrolink station, a park-and-ride facility, and an on-site day care facility. It accommodates approximately 1,600 commuter vehicles and includes a 1.6 acre service commercial area. Average daily Metrolink ridership is 8,000 and increasing.

As a multimodal regional transportation hub, the Montclair Transcenter is a major stop on the San Bernardino Metrolink line and is served by Foothill Transit, Omnitrans and RTA bus lines. In addition, the Transcenter acts as a Caltrans Park-and-Ride facility.

The Montclair Transcenter has intensified the regional attraction of the area and is viewed as an important component in the future development of North Montclair. The Transcenter will not only provide opportunities for the development of commuter-related facilities within its own site, but will also provide the key element in the transportation link between North Montclair, the Montclair Plaza, and outlying cities. To facilitate this linkage, a viable and convenient connection between the Transcenter and Plaza is part of the overall vision for the North Montclair Downtown Specific Plan.

Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension

The proposed Foothill Extension of the Metro Gold Line will continue to the cities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale, Azusa, Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. A trip from Montclair to downtown Pasadena would take a little over 40 minutes and further to Los Angeles would take approximately 75 minutes. Light rail will assist with the planning goals of redistributing growth and strengthening established downtowns in the foothill communities. It will offer shorter commuting trips, increased energy savings (estimated 1.5 million gallons of gasoline each year) and reduced levels of pollution (estimated 4 tons of carbon monoxide).
