New year, new service enhancements! Effective January 2, 2018, several Omnitrans bus routes will undergo run-time adjustments for improved efficiency and transfer connections. These changes, along with new transit partnerships, will make transportation more convenient for the San Bernardino Valley.
As of this week, Metrolink now serves the San Bernardino Transit Center, providing more transportation options and allowing quicker access for Omnitrans riders heading to Los Angeles and Orange County via passenger rail. Omnitrans riders are now able to connect to Metrolink at the SBTC, and hop on the San Bernardino Line to Downtown Los Angeles, or the Inland Empire-Orange County Line and head as far south as Oceanside.
Additionally, a new Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) route will begin to serve the San Bernardino Transit Center on January 14, 2018. The route, Commuter Link Express Route 200, connects passengers from Downtown San Bernardino to Riverside and Anaheim with limited stops along the way. Popular destinations on this route include: the Riverside Galleria, Disneyland Resort, Anaheim Convention Center, and the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center.
