Please join us! SBCTA, the City of Montclair, Union Pacific Railroad, and our Project Partners cordially invite you to a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the new grade separation over the Union Pacific Railroad tracks along Monte Vista Avenue.
At the September SBCTA Board meeting, Directors received a presentation from Steve Lambert of The 20/20 Network, an Inland Empire (IE) based communications firm. Mr. Lambert outlined a new initiative to support the IE based on non-profit organizations.

The IE has long lived in the shadows of its coastal neighbors to the west, struggling to establish its own identity and, more often than not, falling short when it comes to securing outside support and investment. The IE’s nonprofit community has been particularly hard hit, lagging significantly behind the rest of California when it comes to philanthropic investment.
Recently, an article was published about the extension challenges of the Los Angeles Metro Gold Line light rail service from Los Angeles County to Montclair. The article is very comprehensive in identification of the funding challenges associated with the service continuing east to San Bernardino County. SBCTA Executive Director Ray Wolfe raised awareness of this article at the September Board meeting.
Last week, the Board approved a contract with Mission Critical Partners to complete the Optimizing Emergency Medical Dispatch Plan. This plan is part of the greater SBCOG Work Plan that provides a general overview for use of the funds in a 3-5 year timeframe for Council of Governments (COG) initiatives.

The goal of the Emergency Services Improvement Project is to support the overall system of health care in the region by improving the patient experience, maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency by reducing the overuse of the 911 system in San Bernardino County, and creating a new standard of best practices for non-urgent calls.
Victor Valley Transit Authority (VVTA) Board recently approved funding which will allow the Trona Community Senior Center (TCSC) to provide one day a week transportation service between Trona and Ridgecrest. This service will be available to all residents of the Trona community.
