ARTIC is cool

ARTIC, not to be confused with the Arctic, is still cool.  The Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center is the subject of this site at  This major project was mentioned a while back in this blog, and it looks like initial use will happen in 2014.  This project will have major forms of transportation in Orange County converging so that people can easily transfer from one mode to another.  This includes the resort transportation system (ART) serving Disneyland.
The ARTIC Project will connect to existing Metrolink, Amtrak and OCTA bus services, and will enable connectivity to emerging transit services including: Anaheim Rapid Connection (ARC), California High-Speed Rail, and California-Nevada Super Speed Train.
The benefits of making travel to DLR easier are discussed in the project description...
The Disneyland Resort generates $4.7 billion annually for the Southern California economy. That number, from an independent economic impact study conducted in 2010, includes the spending from millions of guests who visit The Anaheim Resort and their impacts on the local businesses and The Anaheim Resort.
