The approval from the board finalises the EIR for the two-phased project which will extend the L.A Metro nine miles further east. 
 
As part of Phase 1, that is scheduled to start by 2029, the line will extend from Pomona to the city of Whittier. It will also include three new rail stations (with two of these being underground) as well as a new Maintenance and Storage Facility in the city of Montebello. 
 
The initial segment from East Los Angeles to Greenwood Station in Montebello will include approximately three miles of light-rail transit underground, a half-mile of aerial transit and 1.1 miles of track at street level, for a total of 4.6 miles (7.4km) of new line from the current terminus. 
 
'LA Metro is continuing to take steps to expand the system to reach more of the Los Angeles region and improve connections within the county.' said Karen Bass, L.A Mayor and L.A Metro Board Chair.
