About the Foothill Gold Line Operations Campus

The 24-acre Foothill Gold Line Operations Campus took nearly four years to design and build. At full capacity, it will house up to 84 light rail vehicles and nearly 200 employees and operate 24/7. The facility is one of the only of its kind to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standards, one of the highest levels of recognition available due to its energy and water conservation measures. An artistic theme has been incorporated throughout the facility, created by Southern California artist Christie Beniston, who was inspired by the California Poppy:

“The first Spanish explorers sailing the coast of California in the eighteenth century called the region ‘a land of fire,’ noting the deep orange-colored hillsides. It was only after the ships landed that it became clear that poppies were the source of the golden color, giving California its state flower and motto -The Golden State.”

– Christie Beniston
