The future of transportation on display as Aguilar, House Subcommittee Chair tour ESRI Train Station, briefed on Arrow Line
The Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development joined U.S. Rep. Pete Aguilar (CA-31) last Tuesday, Sept. 14, in previewing the next generation of commuter transit.
Chairman David Price (NC-04) and Aguilar were in Redlands visiting the global headquarters of ESRI and, later, the train station ESRI is building as part of the upcoming Redlands Passenger Rail System – a nine-mile extension of Metrolink’s San Bernardino Line that will pioneer sustainable transit technology while creating a vital new connection for Southern California’s fastest-growing population center.
ESRI, the global leader in geographic information systems (GIS) technology, is building one of the five stations that will be part of the new system when it opens in 2022.
“The Redlands Passenger Rail represents an energy-efficient and affordable way to help connect communities. I was impressed by the level of partnership on display in the Inland Empire, and look forward to continuing to advocate for these types of key investments in transportation infrastructure throughout the country,” Chairman Price said.
