Announcement: McCain Releases Initial Materials for E Street Corridor sbX Bus Rapid Transit Project
     
  Traffic equipment to support project goals of reduced congestion and cost-effective alternative transit  
 
 

VISTA, CA - July 25, 2012 - McCain Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of intelligent transportation systems, traffic control equipment and parking guidance solutions, today announced official release of its first round of traffic equipment for the Omnitrans E Street Corridor sbX Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project in San Bernardino Valley, California.  The first round of project materials for release includes traffic signals, traffic signal controllers, traffic controller cabinets, poles, safety lighting, and battery backup systems.

A first-of-its-kind project, the Inland Empire intermodal public transit system will increase mobility and decrease congestion, and offer a more environmentally friendly, cost-effective mode of travel. The project will include 16 art-inspired platform sites along the 15.7-mile E Street corridor. The state-of-the-art program will increase transit speed and reliability through the creation of bus-only lanes.  Coupled with advanced transit signal priority (TSP), traffic signal timing can be shortened or extended to help buses stay on schedule.

“We’re pleased to play a part in such an influential, ground-breaking project,” said Kleinjan Deetlefs, vice president of engineering for McCain Inc. “The sbX BRT Project is a vital step in promoting urban mobility and offering commuters an efficient alternative to personal vehicles.”

Akin to the transportation sector, McCain is focused on addressing and supporting sustainable transportation programs that cut travel times, are fuel-efficient, and promote healthy lifestyles for the community. McCain’s traffic control equipment will work in conjunction with the local control software to help manage traffic flow and increase travel efficiencies. Service from northern San Bernardino to Loma Linda is scheduled to commence in early 2014 following project completion.
