Calif.’s San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) launched its new Arrow commuter rail system into service on Monday, which will be operated by Metrolink.

Arrow has been more than a decade in the making, featuring new tracks, enhanced street crossings, quiet zones, and five stations along the nine-mile route between downtown San Bernardino and downtown Redlands. Bringing state-of-the-art clean-air rail technology to one of the world’s busiest transportation corridors, Arrow will transform how passenger rail is operated in the Inland Empire and across the state.

Arrow will connect the East Valley of San Bernardino County to a multimodal transit hub that can provide access to all points west. Five new stations will connect residents, businesses, and visitors to a variety of leisure, education, healthcare, and other destinations.

The stations include San Bernardino – Downtown Station located at Rialto Avenue and E Street, San Bernardino – Tippecanoe Station located between Victoria Avenue and Hardt Street, Redlands – Esri Station across from the Esri campus, Redlands – Downtown Station just north of the historic Redlands Santa Fe Depot, and Redlands – University Station at the south end of campus.

“The launch of Arrow signals the next generation of passenger rail service across our region. This clean-air service will help to improve air quality while providing direct access to the Metrolink system for tens of thousands of additional riders in one of the fastest-growing population and economic centers in the nation,” said Art Bishop, president of the SBCTA board and Mayor Pro-Tem of the Town of Apple Valley.
