Last year, Omnitrans introduced Freeway Express Route 208 connecting Downtown San Bernardino and Yucaipa with limited stops along the way at popular destinations and connection points.

Additionally, the wildly popular Summer Youth Fare is back this June and July!

That means that shopping trips to the mall, movie screenings, outings to the park, lunch and coffee with friends are only $1 this summer!

  1. U shouldn’t count holidays buses aren’t in service on bus passes cuz it’s not fair that u charge us for days not in services it’s even worse if it’s during Christmas and new years 2 days in a week. Passes need to be extended for those days.

    It’s more interesting for the riders for some changes . especial by my self and my husband including my 2 lovely grand daughters America &Liberty they LOVE to ride the (we name them because they live with Us from …,we ride buses since 2006 to present (when we just came from our origin .).. it’s really fun, exiting, adventure and save a lot of money we really appreciate keep it up

  3. Why is it the other transit agencies can provide hoilday service for their customers but you can’t. You can at least run the service on a Sunday schedule. Try it sometime. You’ll get people to ride, I’m sure

  4. I think they can work on holidays like a saturdays or Sundays schedules, Metrolink San Bernardino line Usually will be in operation for holidays

  5. It would be nice if I didn’t have to walk a mile to and from the SBX stop at Palm and Kendall; I’m a senior and the 2 is Good but times aren’t as convenient; my car broke down and I’ve been walking for a few months to the bus

    Is there any way omni I can bring back the 9:38am slot for bus 290 there’s just a huge gap between the 8:39am & 10:47am time slots that route is really convenient also maybe bus 365 could run every 30min that would be amazing I’m a daily bus rider I work in Chino by the prison so there’s times when the previous bus I’m riding either leaves late or makes allot of stops and I literally arrive to Chino transit center like one min late or even sometimes when it’s just driving away hopefully you take in consideration

    • Thank you for your suggestion, Ivonne. I have forwarded your feedback our service planning team for consideration. They will follow up once discussed. Thank you for riding!
