West Valley Connector Corridor
The San Bernardino Valley will experience growing traffic congestion and one million more people by 2030. Omnitrans is working to improve mobility in the Valley with an enhanced, state-of-the-art bus rapid transit system.
The West Valley Connector Corridor is the next segment in this system. The project goals are:
- Respond to growth in Fontana, Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, Montclair and Pomona
- Provide faster, more attractive transit service on Holt Blvd./Route 61 and Foothill Blvd./Route 66 corridors
- Connect all major activity centers:
- Ontario Mills, Convention Center and Ontario Airport
- Victoria Gardens, schools, downtown and civic center areas
3 Metrolink stations
- Major employers such as Kaiser Permanente Hospital
- Support the cities’ plans
- Analyze all viable alternatives to determine the best option
