Inland Empire Transit Spotlight:

ACTION ALERT: Stop the Metrolink SB Line Cuts! - Transit Talking Points
Contact your local elected official sitting on the Metrolink and SANBAG Boards and demand real solutions to a funding dispute that has put the Metrolink San Bernardino Line is into fiscal trouble, threatening midday trains 310 and 327, and late evening/night trains 338 and 339. Corridor-based rail service has proven to maximize regional rail productivity.

09/17/2014: 'Grid-and-Spoke' Bus Service in Downtown Riverside? - Transit Talking Points
That appears to be the proposal but only RTA Routes 1 and 16 have the frequencies to guarantee short transfer wait times under this routing design model. How will such layovers be impacted if up to two transfers are required to get between the downtown Metrolink train station and other nearby destinations served by RTA buses like UC Riverside? Don't miss this one.

09/15/2014: Getting between Wildomar and Murrieta by Bus - Transit Talking Points
RTA has big improvements planned for two popular contract-operated bus routes that circulate around Lake Elsinore. But how will that affect direct connections between central Wildomar and north Murrieta? Let's take a look.

09/10/2014: Fixing Southwest Riverside County Circuitous Bus Service - Transit Talking Points
This campaign has been on the Coalition's books for years and now we have an official solution. RTA has proposed more streamlined bus hub-and-spoke routing so that it won't take hours to travel between Temecula, Murrieta, and points north. Check out the preview and post your comments.

09/08/2014: The Truth about the Metrolink Ridership drop - Transit Talking Points
The press has had their day of hitting the railroad hard over a decline of about 600,000 riders since 2008, but didn't Metrolink post some gains in 2012 and 2013? We have the truth of the matter and how it can be fixed. Let's debate.

09/03/2014: Improving Downtown Riverside Mass Transit - Transit Talking Points
Riverside officials desire a downtown transit station at the Metrolink station, but why are several bus routes not proposed to stop or pass through there? How will this affect connectivity and Metrolink transfers?

08/29/2014: Politics: Jumping Sharks! - Alpern at Large
Remember the days when the state government lived within its means and not squandered our money to the special interests? The Transit Coalition Chair Kenneth Alpern weighs in.
