AZUSA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/29/12 -- Important developments continue to evolve around Rosedale, the finest brand new master-planned community in the San Gabriel Valley. The future Metro Gold Line boarding station that is scheduled to open in 2015, will give Rosedale residents the opportunity to leave their car at home and enjoy a more efficient, faster commute to employment centers in downtown Los Angeles. Located between Citrus Avenue and Palm Drive, the station will be within walking distance for residents of this new community, an easy, cost-efficient alternative for homeowners who prefer the convenience of light rail transportation for their weekday work commute.

"The future opening of the Metro Gold Line Station will represent a significant financial and lifestyle benefit for Rosedale residents. When someone considers the financial impact of rising gas prices, along with the cost of automobile maintenance, plus the hassle of freeway gridlock Southland drivers must contend with, more and more people are relying on public transportation as a viable option to simplify their lives," said Carina Hathaway, Vice President of Marketing for Rosedale Land Partners, LLC, the developer of Rosedale. "The Metro Gold Line Station will be a valuable asset for homeowners who want smart, productive solutions and who realize that taking the light rail will save both time and money. Business commuters who take advantage of this public transportation will get to the office faster and they can also spend their morning and evening commutes reading the news, getting ahead with their work or just enjoying the ride."
