  • Stakeholder Engagement

PlaceWorks assisted SCAG and the City of Rancho Cucamonga prepare for the Cucamonga Station, which will soon become a one-of-a-kind transit hub for travelers across the region. The Metrolink Station will be expanded and integrated with a future high-speed rail station, an underground transit link to the Ontario Airport, and new bus rapid transit (BRT) service. Brightline West has a memorandum of understanding in place with state and regional authorities to build a high-speed rail system between Las Vegas and Rancho Cucamonga that will be twice as fast as driving. San Bernardino County Transit Authority has initiated the design and construction of an underground transit link from the Cucamonga Station to the Ontario Airport; BRT service to/from the station will be provided through the Omnitrans West Valley Connector.

The Cucamonga Station Plan also envisions significant housing, employment, and supporting commercial development that will be seamlessly connected with adjacent neighborhoods under construction. The planning process included substantial coordination with transit agencies, property owners, developers, and the city. Technical studies included market and pro forma analyses and a shared parking analysis to inform the provisions of the plan.
