TRANSIT FEATURES OF PROPOSED SAN BERNARDINO CORRIDOR EXPRESS BUSWAY PROJECT

FOR THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF A FIVE-YEAR TEST PERIOD, BUSWAY FLYERS WILL HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE TWO LANES TO BE ADDED TO THE FREEWAY. IN THE THIRD YEAR, AUTOMOBILES MAY BE METERED INTO THE BUS LANES AT THE EL MONTE END AND AT THE MIDPOINT STATION AND JUST EAST OF THE LONG BEACH FREEWAY, UP TO THE POINT WHERE THE AUTOS FILL THE GAPS BETWEEN BUSES BUT NOT TO THE EXTENT WHERE THEY CAUSE ANY SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN BUS SPEEDS. PRIOR TO THE END OF THE THIRD YEAR, THE FEDERAL AND STATE AGENCIES INVOLVED WILL REACH A DECISION AS TO THE METHOD OF OPERATION DURING THE LAST TWO YEARS OF THE FIVE-YEAR PERIOD. THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT, DEVELOPED BY THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA RAPID TRANSIT DISTRICT, IS TO INCREASE THE PEOPLE CARRYING CAPACITY OF THE SAN BERNARDINO FREEWAY CORRIDOR. THE IMPACT OF THE PROJECT ON THE PHYSICAL SETTING, ON OTHER TRANSPORTATION MODES, IN RELATION TO PASSENGER COMFORT AND SAFETY, AND AS A TEST OF A CONCEPT ARE CONSIDERED.
