Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Grand Opening March 5, 2016 at Duarte/City of Hope Station @IWillRide

Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Grand Opening March 5, 2016

The ceremonies will take place at the Duarte/City of Hope Station with a street fair, live music, food trucks and a VIP luncheon at the renowned cancer hospital on March 5, 2016.

More details here:

Metro CEO Phil Washington announced last October that the 11.9-mile extension would begin taking passengers on Saturday, March 5.

Passenger service is scheduled to begin that day at noon on the entire, 11.9-mile extension from east Pasadena to the Azusa/Glendora border, said Rick Jager, Metro spokesman.

When the Foothill Gold Line from Pasadena to Azusa opens for passenger service on March 5, 2016, six new stations in Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa will provide light rail transit service to areas of Los Angeles County that have not had it available in more than half a century. In this video, you’ll hear from residents who live, work and play near the current Gold Line stations, many of whom ride the line regularly.

Where will you ride once the Gold Line opens to Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa? TELL US at www.WhereWillYouRide.org

Nissan Auto Recall Affects Close to 1 Million Autos #nissanfail Third Attempt

As if Nissan didn’t already have enough problems, they are now faced with a recall of 930,000 vehicles for a defective hood latch. The defect could result in the hood unexpectedly opening while driving!

Making it third time Nissan has had a recall to fix this issue and it still not fixed!

So what does this say about Nissan, well if you purchased a Nissan LEAF in 2011 or 2012, and are experiencing battery capacity loss and Nissan refuses to do anything until the loss of the 9th bar, but within the 60,000 miles and 5 year period.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which said on Friday that 846,000 vehicles in the United States would be recalled, has received complaints from owners of Altimas whose hoods unexpectedly opened. Altimas accounted for about 25 percent of Nissan’s U.S. brand sales last year.

Tesla Model 3 Announcement Pre-Ordering Coming in March 2016 #TeslaModel3 @TeslaMotors

Tesla Motors is making the headlines with the upcoming release of the the Tesla Model 3. Priced at $35,000 before federal incentives.

There have been images of the design online, in about a month we should see what it will look like.
This tweet post claims to have captured the Model 3.

What it really looks like will be revealed in March.  Stay tuned for the date and time.  It should be streamed live.


Tesla opened a sales and service center in Burbank this past October.

Tesla has sold approx 100,000 Model S vehicles. EV chargers are key to the success of EV adoption.  With longer range and quicker charge times the demand for long periods of charging will go down, but as adoption grows more EV’s will mean that more EV chargers will be needed. We are seeing another spike in cities where chargers are being installed. Burbank has roadside chargers.
