Omnitrans offers free mobile day pass for Earth Week 2019

Don’t normally ride transit? Be kind (and overall awesome) to the Earth and ride Omnitrans free any day the week of Earth Day – April 22-26, 2019!

Our transportation use is responsible for 26% of greenhouse gases emitted in the United States. Riding Omnitrans for just one day, instead of driving your car, cuts carbon emissions by 20 pounds. Over a year, that translates to nearly 5,000 pounds of emissions! Our fleet of 178 transit buses is powered by natural gas, resulting in less pollution, which means cleaner air for us all to breathe.

If we’ve convinced you to go green for Earth Week, here’s how to redeem your mobile 1-day pass:

  • Download the free Token Transit app by texting TOKEN to 41411 or click here from your smartphone.
  • Once your account is created, visit www.tokentransit.com/omniearthweek2019 to access the free pass beginning on April 22. One per person.
  • That’s it. That’s the trick. You’re ready to save on gas and leave your car at home. Simply flash your paperless pass to the driver when boarding Omnitrans.

But wait – there’s more! We want you to let the world know what you’re doing to honor it and help preserve it. Omnitrans will be giving away three pairs of Regal Cinemas movie tickets to randomly drawn winners. To participate:

  • Post a photo of your act of kindness to the planet on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, tagging @Omnitrans. This can be a selfie of you riding the bus or picking up trash at a bus stop or transit center, for example.
  • The picture must be shared during Earth Week, April 22-26, 2019. The three winners will be chosen and contacted on Monday, April 29, 2019.

For personalized trip planning assistance, use the online Trip Planner at Omnitrans.org, or give us a call at 1-800-966-6428. The free day pass is good on any of the Omnitrans bus routes, including sbX rapid transit and OmniGo community shuttles, but not on Access paratransit service.

If your transit commute requires train and bus, Metrolink is offering free rides on Monday, April 22, 2019. For those details, visit Metrolink.com.

  1. I can’t even get a free pass on the app and the bus driver said she doesnt even know whats im talking about. Why promot something that doesnt even work. What a waste.

    • Good morning, Steven. Apologies for the inconvenience. We are currently working to resolve the broken link issue. We hope that it will be fixed soon, and that you’ll take advantage of the free day pass offer another day this week.

  2. I was able to access the pass on my phone. But my husband and my niece were unable to obtain a day pass. When we entered our numbers an error message popped up saying something like Please try again. Only one per number or person. They have never even used token transit before. This was going to be new for them.
