ANAHEIM, Calif. — This week, commuters got their first view of an enormous, airy transportation hub that reflects Orange County's growing embrace of public transit, the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC), the Los Angeles Times reported.

The $188-million transportation center in the heart of Anaheim, not far from Disneyland, is designed as a central hub where trains, buses, cars and bicycles will converge. Officials hope it ultimately will be the final stop for the state's proposed high-speed bullet train, according to the report.

Backers say the aim wasn't just to create a train station but to also make a statement about the future. They wanted a central station to unite previously scattered transportation services, said Curt Pringle, the former mayor of Anaheim and once board chairman of the California High-Speed Rail Authority, the Times reported.
