Arrow Train

NEXT STOP: REDLANDS

The highly anticipated Metrolink Arrow service began operating between San Bernardino and Redlands on Monday, October 24, 2022.

Beginning Friday, December 9, the Quiet Zone will be in place along the entire Arrow route, and early morning and late-night trains will be added to the schedule.

Arrow service extends Metrolink’s San Bernardino Line by nine miles and includes four new stations. New Arrow trains will run between a new station at the University of Redlands and Metrolink’s existing San Bernardino-Downtown Station, with daily connections to and from Metrolink’s San Bernardino and Inland Empire-Orange County lines.

Arrow Trains

Traveling on Arrow trains is a breath of fresh air, literally! The trains are brand new, with a sleek, colorful, and modern design. Called Diesel Multiple Units, or DMUs, they are powered by smaller, lower-emission diesel engines for a quieter and more energy-efficient ride.

Arrow trains feature several amenities:
  • Capacity for 120 standing passengers
  • Space for up to eight wheelchair passengers
  • USB chargers at most seats
  • Storage hooks for up to 12 bicycles
  • Level boarding at the station platforms
