Transit Center Platform Takes Shape

People passing by the Rialto Avenue and E Street sbX station can begin to see what center-running stations will look like. The installation of station artwork will be done toward the end of the project.

During the past month, construction crews have been working on the Rialto Avenue and E Street sbX station – one of six center-running stations throughout the project. Motorists driving past the Rialto Avenue station will see that a raised concrete platform and steel canopy structure have already been built.

Construction of the San Bernardino Transit Center is expected to start in fall 2013.

This specific station will allow riders to easily transfer to other modes of public transit across the street at the future site of the San Bernardino Transit Center. Riders will have the option to connect to the new Downtown San Bernardino Metrolink extension, which can take passengers all the way to Union Station in Los Angeles or transfer to Omnitrans regular bus service. There are also plans to provide passenger rail service from the transit center to Redlands through the Redlands Passenger Rail Project, which is currently in the environmental phase.

Crews have begun constructing the new curbs and gutters along the south side of Hospitality Lane.

Elsewhere in San Bernardino, there has been significant progress on E Street as new curbs, gutters and sidewalks are being built on the west side between Rialto Avenue and 6thStreet. On Hospitality Lane, traffic control has been removed on the north side of the street between Tippecanoe Avenue and Commerce Center Drive East. On the south side of Hospitality Lane, crews have already begun to build new curbs and gutters between E Street and Tippecanoe Avenue. New driveways and sidewalks will be constructed in the coming weeks and months.
