About
Redlands Passenger Rail Project

East-west travel corridors between Los Angeles and Redlands are often congested and provide no opportunities for direct transit service. Physical barriers such as the Santa Ana River and Interstate 10, combined with slow local traffic make it difficult for peak-period travelers to get to and from work, home and other activities.

Recognizing a need for a cost-effective travel alternative for communities located along the Redlands Corridor, San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG), the county’s transportation authority and commission, developed the Redlands Passenger Rail Project (Project). A key project under the County's self help sales tax Measure I 2010-2040 Strategic Plan and 10-year Delivery Plan, the Project runs along existing railroad right-of-way from E Street in San Bernardino east to the City of Redlands, roughly a nine-mile extension of passenger rail service.
