SAN BERNARDINO – Officials broke ground on the $192 million SbX bus rapid transit line Thursday morning.

The bus line will connect the Cal State San Bernardino and Loma Linda University areas through a 15.7-mile route.

It will include 16 stations near key civic and business centers.

The bus line is expected to be the first of several transit projects that will converge in the downtown area.
