Public-private partnerships (like the proposed LACC redevelopment) is still a possibility as well.

SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY: Omnitrans looking into speedy service




Neil Nisperos | Press-Enterprise | 15 Apr 2016

Quote:
The Omnitrans bus transportation company wants to increase speedy service to western San Bernardino County and is having a series of public meetings this week to gather public feedback.

The West Valley Connector, similar to the sbX green line bus rapid transit system launched between San Bernardino and Loma Linda in 2014, would travel through Fontana, Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, Montclair and Pomona.

At a total of 25 miles, the line would connect major activity centers, including Kaiser Permanente Fontana Medical Center, Victoria Gardens, Ontario Mills, Citizens Business Bank Arena, Ontario Convention Center, the Ontario Airport and local Metrolink rail stations, according to Omnitrans.

[...]

Omnitrans also is proposing a new weekday-only, peak hour freeway express bus route to serve Yucaipa, Redlands and San Bernardino via I-10, beginning in January 2017.

In addition, the transit agency proposes increasing service span and frequency on the Route 290 freeway express launched last year, which connects San Bernardino, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, Ontario Mills and the Montclair Transit Center via I-215 and I-10. If approved, Route 290 would provide additional early morning and midday trips beginning in September.

PERRIS VALLEY LINE: Service could begin next month on new Metrolink line

Meanwhile, Metrolink is planning public meetings across Southern California on restructuring fares to make them "more equitable."



Tom Sheridan | Press-Enterprise | 22 Apr 2016

Quote:
As Metrolink officials prepare for a handful of public meetings this week on fare restructuring, work crews are putting the finishing touches on the long-awaited Perris Valley Line extension.

The 24-mile extension to the 91 Line -- Metrolink’s first expansion of service in 22 years -- will bring Metrolink trains south to the Perris-Menifee border. The line has seen its projected opening date pushed back more than once due to construction delays, but is now expected to launch service as early as May, according to John Standiford, deputy executive director of the Riverside County Transportation Commission.

“Construction is continuing at a few of the new stations and we are working towards starting service next month,” stated Standiford in an email.

Beginning Monday, April 25, Metrolink will be conducting eight workshops across Southern California to cull public opinion on service costs.

Metrolink spokesman Scott Johnson said the input received at these meetings will be presented to the Southern California Regional Rail Authority board at its meeting May 13 in Los Angeles.

“What we are suggesting our board do is adjust all of the fares throughout our system to be more of a distance-based fare,” he said.

Inland meetings will be held at the Corona Public Library on Wednesday, April 27, and San Bernardino City Council Chambers on Friday, April 29. Both are scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m.

TRANSPORTATION: Rail service to airport a long way off

Area officials praise the notion but disagree how to establish links to and from Ontario



Steve Scauzillo | Press-Enterprise | 14 Jun 2016

Quote:
At a conference Monday aimed at boosting regional connectivity between the Inland Empire and the San Gabriel Valley, territorial and financial issues created a lack of agreement on the best way to move people and solve cross-county gridlock.

At the heart of transportation and economic improvements are two projects that remain in stalemate – a thriving, independent Ontario International Airport and a set of rail lines to serve airport passengers and give cross-county commuters an alternative to driving the 10, 60 or 210 freeways.

[...]

Area representatives agreed that a rail stop is desirable, but disagreed sharply over what it would look like.

Ray Wolfe, executive director of SANBAG, said his agency doesn’t have the money or the political will to support an extension of the Gold Line light-rail from Montclair to Ontario airport. Instead, his agency is pursuing an extension of the Metrolink San Bernardino line from Rancho Cucamonga where it would serve 80 percent of San Bernardino County residents. Another possibility is extending Metrolink’s Riverside line to Ontario Airport.

Perris Valley Line rolls out right on schedule

Transportation officials tout the Perris Valley Line as an answer to providing relief from congestion along I-215, which the train route parallels for several miles, and the 91 freeway.

Isn't CAHSR supposed to serve ONT airport? I also thought that future extensions of the Metro Foothill line were also supposed to have an ONT station as well.

Redlands, Santa Fe Springs get millions for transportation projects

Two train-related projects in Southern California received a portion of the $500 million in competitive grants awarded Friday by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

In the Inland Empire, the Redlands Passenger Rail Project received $8.6 million in grant money. The project, which would cost about $262 million, proposes to extend rail service nine miles from downtown San Bernardino to the University of Redlands.

In Santa Fe Springs, in southeast Los Angeles County, the Department of Transportation awarded $15 million to build the Rosecrans/Marquardt Grade Separation Project. The total cost of the project is $137 million.

California Incline in Santa Monica set to reopen Sept. 1

The California Incline in Santa Monica is scheduled to reopen Sept. 1 — just in time for the Labor Day Weekend.

The beloved landmark — which connects the beach with the bluffs and offers exceptional coastal views — will reopen with a daylong pedestrian party after 17 months of closure.

“Our new California Incline is not only a feat of modern engineering, it’s the fruit of great human effort, sure to be with us for some time to come,” Curtis Castle, a civil engineer with the city’s Public Works Department, said in a prepared statement. “Hundreds of individuals worked on this project day and night for 17 straight months.”

Little Tokyo station? Five years working on this site? I don't get it. Perhaps by the Olympics some of these projects will finally finish. A lifetime.

47,000 daily passengers along Van Nuys by 2040?
Don't we know how this usually plays out already?
I bet it gets that many daily passengers within the first 3 months.

As for WeHo, A and A1 seem more logical both in the short-term vs long-term sense.

Metro ridership down again, as in many other cities. It seems to me that even Curbed is starting to get a glimmer of the truth in spite of their usual cant.

When a roundtrip ticket from Sylmar to DTLA costs $16 don't be surprised. I can drive for a couple of days on that and go to "precisely" where I need to be and multiple trips... WAY too expensive.
