Montebello/Commerce
Why Relocate the Station?

The Citadel and the Commerce Resort are expanding, and are expected
to draw 40% more visitors each year. This increase cannot be
accommodated by private automobile travel alone, hence the need and
opportunity for a multi-modal hub near these developments.
