Community College Students Go Smart with Omnitrans

Chaffey, Crafton Hills, and San Bernardino Valley College

The popular Go Smart program will continue for Chaffey, Crafton Hills, and San Bernardino Valley College students this fall, enabling them to enjoy unlimited bus rides on Omnitrans with their student ID cards. Last spring these students voted to fund the program by assessing themselves a small transportation fee each semester as part of their regular student fees.

A list of currently enrolled student IDs  is provided to Omnitrans by these participating colleges. Students must contact their college directly if there is a problem with their ID  cards.

The Art Institute

The Art Institute of California-Inland Empire is currently participating in the Go Smart pilot program. Instead of ID cards, students at the Institute must obtain a separate pass from the campus store. Passes from previous quarters must also be renewed at the campus store in order to be valid. If you have any questions about the Go Smart program at the Art Institute, visit Student Affairs for more information.

Cal State San Bernardino

The CSUSB Go Smart pilot program ended on June 30th, and there is currently no program to replace it. If this program is important to you and you would like to see it renewed, please contact Associated Students Inc. (ASI) by calling 909-537-5932 or 909-537-5930. You can also email the ASI at asi-pres@causb.edu or visit them on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/asi.csusb. Thank you for your patience.
