Cassie MacDuff brings us this story on the efforts of San Bernardino to encourage transit ridership. The city had three options for what to do with a new trasit stop: put it far away from the train depot, forcing riders to take buses and figure out the schedule; tell Redlands Rail to pay to take it to the depot; or pay themselves to take it there. The city bit the bullet and payed for it themselves, which was a great decision because now they can turn the depot into a multi-modal transit center, which will become a focal point for TOD. It’s great to see that, in the area that typifies sprawl, cities and their leaders have the guts to buck the status quo and encourage better development.
