Plans for hi-speed trains a step forward
RANCHO CUCAMONGA – (INT) – An agreement has cleared the way for Brightline West to build the first, high-speed rail station in the Inland Empire.

Directors of the San Bernardino County Transportation Agency (SBCTA) and the Rancho Cucamonga City Council have signed on to a deal to purchase a 5-acre parcel for the rail station.

The trains will eventually speed passengers between the San Bernardino Valley, the High Desert and Las Vegas.

Plans are also moving ahead for a sub-terranean loop to Ontario International Airport (ONT) where passengers will be transported in just a few minutes between Cucamonga Station and airport terminals.

In anticipation of deploying this service, Omnitrans has already launched ONT Connect, a regular shuttle service from the Cucamonga Station.

Transportation modes at Cucamonga Station would provide service through high-speed rail, the Metrolink San Bernardino Line, and Omnitrans Bus Rapid Transit and local bus service, as well as carpool commuters.
