APU/Citrus College is an at-grade light rail station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system. It is located between Palm Drive and Citrus Avenue, a block north of Foothill Boulevard, in Azusa, California next to Citrus College and within walking distance of Azusa Pacific University. The station is currently being used as Metro Gold Line's new temporary terminal station.
Currently this station can only be accessed by going through the Rosedale private community. Plans and construction to extend Citrus Avenue to meet the APU/Citrus Goldline station have been running behind schedule. Rosedale (new home development company responsible for the Citrus Avenue extension project) had asked the MTA for a four month delay in the opening of the APU/Citrus station due to slower than expected construction.
Due to heavy rain in March 2016, Rosedale's underpass construction was flooded. Rosedale estimated additional weather related delays could set back the street opening until August 2016 or even 2017.
