The ARTIC Project Vision
ARTIC (Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center) will be a world-class transportation center where people will seamlessly move between transit services to reach Southern California’s activity centers and business districts. Transit-oriented developments in the immediate area will integrate with the ARTIC Project to form a vibrant Southern California community. The design will be functional, adaptable and flexible to meet the needs of the users and service providers.
ARTIC will serve as a hub for Orange County and the region, a landmark where freeways, major arterials bus routes and Orange County’s backbone rail system converge. The network of transit choices will continue to grow in the coming years as the number of Metrolink and Amtrak trains serving Anaheim and local and express bus routes increases. On opening day, ARTIC services will include: Metrolink, Amtrak, OCTA bus, Anaheim Resort Transportation, shuttles, taxis, and tour and charter buses. ARTIC will also accommodate future plans for the Anaheim Rapid Connection (ARC) and high-speed trains.
ARTIC is a multi-million dollar investment in Anaheim and will act as a major economic stimulant, with employment opportunities in the transportation and construction industry (consultants, contractors, construction workers), that aims to assist in revitalizing the local economy.
ARTIC has secured approximately $185 million in funding and has received state and federal environmental clearance.
The City of Anaheim selected Clark Construction Group – California, LP, one of the nation’s most experienced and respected providers of construction services, to construct ARTIC. Construction commenced September 2012 and is scheduled to conclude late 2014.
