Ride Omnitrans and Get $2 Off National Orange Show Citrus Fair Admission!

PrintIf you’re like us, you can’t wait for next week’s 101st National Orange Show (NOS) Citrus Fair in San Bernardino – who doesn’t love carnival rides, cool vintage displays, and fair food? To make the Fair even better, Omnitrans has teamed up with NOS to offer $2 discount coupons onboard!

While supplies last, simply ride any East Valley Omnitrans route (1 – 29, sbX, 290), and you’ll find coupons for a $2 discount on NOS Citrus Fair admission at the front of the bus. Coupons are good every day of the “Blast from the Past”-themed Fair, April 20 – 24.

Omnitrans provides direct service to the NOS fairgrounds via Route 2 and the sbX Green Line.  sbX operates every 10 to 15 minutes on weekdays.  Route 2 runs hourly on weekdays, and every 20 minutes on weekends.

Additionally, 13 other bus routes connect to sbX and Route 2 at the San Bernardino Transit Center, just a mile away from the fairgrounds. Detailed bus schedules and an online trip planner are available at: www.omnitrans.org/schedules/. For personalized assistance in English and Spanish, call 1-800-966-6428.

Because we don’t want to miss the fun, Omnitrans will have “Old Blue,” its vintage 1958 GMC bus, on display at the fair on Saturday and Sunday.  Stop by to take a photo with Old Blue and Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe (at least their cardboard versions)!  Photos posted online with #OmniRetro will be entered into an Omnitrans photo contest. Stay tuned for more details!

Hot weather travel tips & cooling centers

Summer Safety Tips

With summer here, it’s important than ever for bus riders to stay hydrated and cool.  Below are a few travel tips to help you beat the heat.

  • Always carry water with you and drink it regularly, even if you’re not thirsty. Try freezing a water bottle the night before to carry with you the next day.
  • Protect your skin by wearing a good sunscreen. Preventing direct sunlight from hitting your head can help you stay cool. Use an umbrella or a hat to create your own shade.
  • Wear lightweight, light colored clothing to help ventilate the body and block the sun. Avoid non-breathing synthetic clothing which can trap heat and cause you to overheat.
  • Try to plan your travel for early morning or in the evening when temperatures are cooler. UseNexTrip real time bus arrival info to reduce wait times at the bus stop.

Cooling Centers

Spending a few hours in an air-conditioned environment can bring down the body’s core temperature and make it easier to handle the heat. Older and/or frail adults, homeless people, parents with small children and persons with health conditions that may be made worse by the weather should consider spending time in a cooling center, particularly between 1pm and 5pm when temperatures are at their highest. Cooling centers may also have water and other liquids available to protect against dehydration.
