Redlands Passenger Rail

Like eBART in the Bay Area, the Inland Empire’s Arrow will be a short (nine-mile) DMU line on the exurban edge connected to a regional rail terminal, and effectively serving as an extension of that line (one difference: a few Metrolink trains will use the line during peak periods, running express to its busiest stop, Downtown Redlands). Service is scheduled to begin in 2021.

DESIGN NOTES

The project’s visual identity is surprisingly modern: not to judge, but aside from its association with a David Lynch movie, the IE is not known for its sense of style. This map borrows colors, typeface (DIN Condensed) and other elements, but smoothes out some of the official map‘s eccentricities.
