Curbed LA has the good news about the 13.7 mile Pasadena branch of Gold Line at it hits its 10th B-Day.  Trip boardings have gone up from 14,000 on opening day to 44,000 today - with only 30% of that increase coming from the extension to Bole Heights and East LA - and trip time from the Pasadena end of the line - the Sierra Madre Station in East Pasadena - has actually dropped by 7 minutes to 29 minutes.  The wait for train at nights has also dropped to 10  minutes on weekdays until midnight and the next extension of the line will be 11.5 miles to Azusa with future extensions planned that could reach all the way out to Ontario Airport.  More details can also be found at Metro's blog, The Source.
