Redlands passenger-rail project advances to final design


The San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) announced late last week that the Redlands passenger-rail project has entered final design.

During the design phase, the agency's engineers will put final touches on the rail footprint and design for each of the line's five station locations, SANBAG officials said in a press release.

The 9-mile route will run from downtown San Bernardino, Calif., to the University of Redlands in Redlands, Calif. The service will allow riders to connect with other modes of transportation, including San Bernardino County Public Transit (Omnitrans), Metrolink and other regional transit alternatives.

With the launch the new service, passengers who want to travel to Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego will be able to connect to Metrolink service at the new San Bernardino Transit Center, SANBAG officials said.

"Last year we were focused on the environmental phase and now we turn our attention to making the Redlands passenger-rail project a reality," said SANBAG Board President Ryan McEachron.

The project is expected to support the local economy, SANBAG officials said.
