sbX Bus Rapid Transit Marks 5 Years!

Five years ago, Omnitrans launched the sbX Green Line serving Loma Linda and San Bernardino on April 28, 2014, as one of the first bus rapid transit (BRT) lines in the nation. It was the first of its kind in the Inland Empire.

Ridership on sbX has grown from an average of just under 42,000 passengers per month in 2014 to nearly 70,000 per month so far in 2019. In all, over 3.4 million trips have been taken aboard the silver sbX 60-foot articulated coaches.

“We’re proud of the success of sbX,” said Omnitrans CEO P. Scott Graham.  “It demonstrates that investing in speedier transit options and enhanced station amenities will attract customers.”

Omnitrans Extends sbX Service Hours

The sbX Green Line, the bus rapid transit line serving San Bernardino and Loma Linda, now begins service a little earlier in the morning, starting at 5 a.m., with extended service through 10 p.m. on weekdays!

The increased span of service makes commuting possible for those who work earlier shifts during the week, or for people who like to catch a late-night movie screening downtown.

“Longer hours on sbX help those working in the hospitality, healthcare and logistics industries,” said Omnitrans CEO P. Scott Graham. “Students taking evening classes and families wanting to take in a ball game or movie downtown will also benefit.”
