Downtown San Bernardino Passenger Rail Project Celebration 

This week we celebrated the completion of the Downtown San Bernardino Passenger Rail Project. Beginning Saturday, December 16, 2017, Metrolink's San Bernardino and Inland Empire/Orange County lines will be extended one mile from the Santa Fe Depot to the recently completed San Bernardino Transit Center (SBTC). Serving as a key, multi-modal transportation hub, SBTC links a variety of transportation options including several Omnitrans local routes, the sbX Green Line, and neighboring transit agencies: Pass Transit, Mountain Transit, and Victor Valley Transit Authority (VVTA). In addition, Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) connections will begin in January 2018.

SBCTA and Metrolink initiated the project in 2014. The approximate three-year project was funded in part by Federal, State and Local sources, including approximately $23 million from the Federal Transit Administration, $36 million from State sources and $64 million Measure I and Local funds from SBCTA.

California Transportation Commission Meeting at SBCTA

The California Transportation Commission (CTC) will be conducting a workshop in the SBCTA Board Room on Monday, December 11th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., to discuss guidelines for their Active Transportation Program (ATP). ATP projects encourage increased use of active modes of transportation such as biking and walking, increase mobility and safety for non-motorized users, and advance local efforts to achieve greenhouse gas reduction goals. If any cities or local non-profit organizations are interested in pursuing state funding for ATP projects, we encourage you to attend and take the opportunity to speak with CTC staff directly.
