Guide to September 2017 Service Changes

The latest Bus Book becomes effective Tuesday, September 5, and we have a preview of the new service changes designed to enhance your Omnitrans experience!

The highlights include service every 15 minutes into Ontario Airport AND newly extended morning and evening sbX hours, along with minor enhancements to other local routes that will enhance connections and on-time performance.

Traveling to Ontario International Airport will now be easier than ever with Route 61 providing 15-minute service to the airport on weekdays and weekends. The two bus stops are located along Terminal Way at Terminals 2 and 4, just east of the baggage claim areas. Other popular destinations along Route 61 include Citizens Business Bank Arena, Ontario Mills, and the Ontario Convention Center. Route 61 also serves the Fontana and Pomona transit centers, making for great connectivity to the airport via Metrolink and Omnitrans.

sbX‘s Green Line, the bus rapid transit line connecting San Bernardino and Loma Linda, is also extending service hours on weekdays. The first sbX trip will now begin at 5:00 a.m., with service running until 10 p.m. Monday through Friday. This is good news for commuters and students traveling to destinations along the route. Now, you can take sbX to the early shift at work or catch a late night movie with friends! And, in case you didn’t know, there are four Park & Ride locations along the sbX route. They offer free, lighted parking so you can experience a multi-modal commute to get to work, school, or just for entertainment!

    It would so be greatly appreciated and profitable if the route 29 was extended 1 hour later and ran a Saturday schedule on Sunday. Please consider this as there has been new apartment complexes built along Valley Blvd and it will enable so many people that depend on the Omni !
    Thank You kindly !

  2. I think the 5 should go downtown and run more frequently .there’s Soo many people on this route especially kids for school.

  3. In addition to tweaking the schedules it would be really great if you guys could ensure that the buses actually show up at the scheduled time. For instance, per your schedule the 81 going South on Haven is supposed to arrive at Civic Center Drive around 5:17 P.M., but it actually shows up at around 5:30 P.M. on a fairly regular basis. On at least two occasions in the past month it has shown up as late as 6:00 P.M. Operator #2041, who regularly drives the 81 line at that time of day, seems to have no aptitude for arriving on-time, while every other driver I’ve ever seen on that line has had no difficulty at all. Could you guys please do something about this? It would be greatly appreciated.

  4. Pretty nice post, thanks for the awesome article. I’m having troubles subscribing to your blogs feed. Thought I’d let you know
