How often will the train run?

- During non-commute or off-peak hours, trains will operate every 60 minutes
- Weekday and weekend service is planned to start at 5 a.m. and run until 10 p.m.
- In addition to standard passenger rail service, the Metrolink Express train will be extended to serve the Redlands – Downtown Station with limited stop service to and from Los Angeles during the peak commute hours
- San Bernardino – Downtown Station located at 599 W. Rialto Avenue in Downtown San Bernardino
- San Bernardino – Tippecanoe Station, between Victoria Avenue and Hardt Street

- The population of Redlands continue to grow; this project allows for keeping everyone connected and easily able to get to areas of work, leisure, education, and healthcare in an eco-friendly way
What do the trains look like?
- Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs) will be utilized as a primary vehicle for this project
- They are smaller, quieter, cheaper, and more efficient than standard locomotive haul engines
- The next step is hydrogen powered Zero-Emission Multiple Units (ZEMUs) that will be a trailblazer in North America
