REDLANDS, Calif. (KABC)– Metrolink’s Arrow service opens in Redlands on Monday, adding nine miles to the San Bernardino line. It will also extend to five stations.
The service will connect the East Valley of San Bernardino County with a multitransit hub providing access to multiple areas.
For the first time in 90 years, the people of Redlands will have rail service that allows them to ride directly from the Redlands area. Think how many commuters the Autobahn 10 could lift off with that.
“Until the oil companies stop outpacing us at the pump, we need to get more creative with what we do, and investing in transits while they’re safe, reliable and connecting communities is one way to do that,” he said MP Pete Aguilar.
Officials say the Arrow service has been in development for more than a decade.
The two trains that will operate on the 9-mile gauge are known as hybrid trains and are not fully electric. Nevertheless, the hybrid trains are the cleanest and most environmentally friendly trains in the Metrolink fleet. The trains should be emission-free by 2024.
The new service features new platforms, improved road crossings and quiet zones.
