Arrow Maintenance Facility (AMF) Hydrogen Fuel Upgrade Project Draft Environmental Document Now Available for Public Comment

May 13, 2021

The San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) is proposing to retrofit the southern portion of the Arrow’s Maintenance Facility (AMF), currently under construction in the city of San Bernardino, to house a new hydrogen storage and fueling center for the future Zero-Emission Multiple Unit (ZEMU) rail vehicle.

The Arrow service, a new nine-mile rail corridor between San Bernardino and Redlands, will begin operations in 2022 using eco-friendly Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) rail vehicles. With SBCTA’s introduction of ZEMU to the Arrow service, specific upgrades and modifications are required to the AMF to facilitate hydrogen storage, refueling and required safety enhancements. The storage and fueling facility is currently in the environmental phase and a Draft Focused Environmental Impact Report is available for public review and comment from May 7 through June 21, 2021.
