Convert Metrolink Stations for High-Speed Rail

The ARTIC Project Vision

The ARTIC (Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center) project will be an iconic, timeless transportation facility where people will seamlessly move between transit services to reach Southern California activity centers and business districts. Transit oriented development in the immediate area will integrate with the ARTIC project to form a vibrant Southern California community.

A Growing Community

With a population of more than 3 million, Orange County is the second largest county in California and the fifth largest county in the nation. Population is expected to continue to grow in the coming decades with a population of 3.7 million expected by 2040. The city of Anaheim is California's 10th largest city with nearly 350,000 residents and is in the heart of the county. The ARTIC project will serve this growing community--now and into the future. 

Premier Location

The ARTIC project is conveniently situated at major freeways and a short walk from Angel Stadium of Anaheim and Honda Center, home of the 2007 Stanley Cup Champion Anaheim Ducks. The planned state-of-the-art facility will host a transportation hub, "LEEDTM Platinum Certified" sustainable building, and a mixed-use activity center on a 16-acre site publicly owned by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) and the City of Anaheim.

The ARTIC Project concept is to:

  • Provide easy connections between the Platinum Triangle, Anaheim Resort, the southern California region and beyond
  • Facilitate convenient travel via train, intercity bus, taxi, car, or local transit
  • Accommodate high-speed train service infrastructure

The ARTIC project development will relocate the existing Metrolink station from its current location at Angel Stadium at Anaheim to the ARTIC site across from Honda Center. It will support existing transit services as well as accommodate future transit services such as the planned Metrolink service expansion and future Bus Rapid Transit service.
The station also will feature supporting retail, restaurants, civic space and passenger services within the building.
