SBCTA’s Transit Committee recently recommended that the voter-entrusted agency responsible for transportation planning in San Bernardino County conduct a formal, comprehensive study of transit alternatives to and from Ontario International Airport.
The $3 million study would aim to identify the most effective and efficient options for enhancing transit access to the country's fastest-growing airport.
Those options include:
• The building of a connector from Metrolink’s Rancho Cucamonga station using zero-emission passenger trains;
• The use of existing freight lines adjacent to the airport property; or
• An extension of the Gold Line from Los Angeles County.
Public-private partnerships with emerging technology companies would also be explored as possible fits.
