Lower fares are enticing additional riders to the 56.7-mile San Bernardino line that hugs the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains between the Inland Empire and downtown’s Union Station.
For example, an adult round trip ticket between San Bernardino and L.A. that used to cost $26.50 is $20. From Rancho Cucamonga to L.A. a round-trip ticket is $16, down from $21.50. Covina to L.A. and back is $11.50, down from $15.50.
