Sierra Madre
Villa

is the current northern terminus of the Gold Line and opened on July 26, 2003. The Foothill Extension is under construction to extended the line east 11.5 miles to Azusa scheduled to open in 2015. Extending the line a further 12.6 miles to Montclair is in the advanced stages of the environmental process, and extremely early initial studies have been made that could eventually bring the Gold Line out of Los Angeles County, into San Bernardino County to Ontario Airport.

The station is the main large park and ride station for the gold line and has a five story parking garage with 95 spaces located on the north side of the freeway. There is a bus loop on the first level and sidewalk entrances from Sierra Madre Villa Avenue. To reach the Light Rail platform, passengers must take one of 4 elevators to the 4th floor, where TVMs are located and take a bridge across the northbound lanes of traffic which has mesh sides. When finally above the single island platform. There is artwork, consisting of large black and white portraits called Untitled by Tony Gleaton above the two staircases that go down on opposite directions to the island platform. There are also two elevators. This one station entrance is towards the western end of the platform, the eastern end is covered for its entire length by a canopy. Trains use relay switches to turn back before entering the station but the two tracks continue a short ways beyond the platform and can be used to store a few extra trains.
