In addition, 66 percent of those same riders said they no longer drive to work according to a Metro survey of passengers who boarded the train at stations on the 11.5-mile light-rail addition. Five new parking facilities in Azusa, Arcadia, Monrovia, Irwindale, and Durate support the new extension and alternative transportation options for passengers.  (Rendering courtesy Watry Design.)
