We want to hear from you!Posted June 27th, 2018
We are proposing changes to Line 497 and want your feedback.
Foothill Transit is proposing a change to the route of Line 497. Line 497 currently starts at Chino Park & Ride in Chino Hills. Our proposed change would shift the starting point to Fairplex Park & Ride in Pomona. The change would close the stops at Chino Park & Ride and Industry City Hall Park & Ride.
If we made this change, Line 497 customers that currently board at the Industry City Hall Park & Ride would have an option to ride Line 498 from West Covina or Line 493 from Rowland Heights. Customers that board at the Chino Park & Ride would have an option to catch Lines 497 and 699 from the proposed stop in Pomona or Lines 493 and 495 from our Industry Park & Ride.
Take a look at the map below to see how the proposed change would affect the line. The segment in green is the proposed route, and the segment in dashed red is the current route.
We will be visiting Chino Park & Ride (Near the CA-71 Chino Ave. off-ramp) and Industry City Hall Park & Ride (Hacienda Ave. and Stafford St.) to meet with you. We welcome you to ask us questions and share your feedback. Here are the dates and times:
