Other Developments in Rancho Cucamonga

the city of Rancho Cucamonga will build a new train station adjacent to the existing Metrolink Station in Azsa Court and operate under San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA).

The announcement was made last month that Rancho Cucamonga will get a new train station for Vegas and Ontario airport transit projects.

This will improve intermodal connectivity, which is already under strain due to a general shipping crisis brewing in the US, and Southern California.

A Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system called The West Valley Connector (WVC) project is coming to San Bernardino in 2024. The federal, state, and city governments have collectively earmarked $266 Million for the project. The biggest portion of this amount, $115 Million, comes from the federal government. Part of the funding will be used to buy 18 electric buses that will ply the route.

This was announced by the San Bernardino County Transport Authority. Phase I of the project is a 19 miles long BRT corridor that traverses the cities of Pomona, Montclair, Ontario, and Rancho Cucamonga, with 21 stations altogether between these cities.

Precisely, the project will have:

  • 15.5 miles of the curb lane
  • 3.5 miles of center-running, dedicated BRT lanes through central Ontario
  • Transit signal priority and queue jump lanes
