Foothill Transit will soon inaugurate its first new commuter bus line in seven years. Line 495 will run from the Industry Park and Ride to Downtown Los Angeles starting in January. The line will make use of the El Monte Busway and stop only at Cal State LA and the LA County Medical Center. The service will cost $4.90 each way when the service launches this January, a stark contrast to the $8.50 Metrolink riders must pay each way to reach the same area. The one-year pilot project is funded by Measure R and will cost $71,000 a month to operate.
