Anaheim Rapid Connection is a fixed-guideway transit system currently in the Alternatives Analysis process that will connect Anaheim area destinations like never before. Starting at ARTIC, this new system will take visitors, high-speed rail riders, employees and area residents to and from the Platinum Triangle, The Anaheim Resort and the Anaheim Convention Center. With ARC it has never been easier for conventioneers to catch a ball game, out-of-towners to get to Disneyland, residents to dine at The Shops at Anaheim GardenWalk, or thousands of area employees to get to and from work – all without having to drive.

Work is currently underway preparing an Alternatives Analysis Report. Alternatives under review include an Enhanced Bus, a Streetcar and an Elevated Fixed-Guideway.
