APU/Citrus College is an at-grade light rail station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system. It is located between Palm Drive and Citrus Avenue, a block north of Foothill Boulevard, in Azusa, California next to Citrus College and within walking distance of Azusa Pacific University.[2] The station is currently being used as Metro Gold Line's new temporary terminal station.[3][4]

This station was constructed as part of the Gold Line Foothill Extension project Phase 2A. It began revenue service on March 5, 2016.[5][6]

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