APU/Citrus College station is an at-grade light rail station on the L Line of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. It is located between Palm Drive and Citrus Avenue, a block north of Foothill Boulevard, in Azusa, California. It is named after the nearby Azusa Pacific University (APU) and Citrus College.[3]

This station opened on March 5, 2016, as part of Phase 2A of the Gold Line Foothill Extension, and currently serves as the northern terminus of the L Line. Phase 2B of the Foothill Extension will open to Pomona in 2026.[4][5]

This station and all the other original and Foothill Extension stations will be part of the A Line upon completion of the Regional Connector project in 2022.

Due to heavy rain in March 2016, the previously delayed underpass construction on North Citrus Avenue was flooded. The Citrus Avenue extension and underpass was finally opened in September 2016.
