Getting to Ontario International Airport (ONT) is about to get easier for travelers starting on Tuesday, September 5, 2017! Avoid the parking lot crowding, pricey ride hailing or car rental and get dropped off, or picked up, right at your terminal by Omnitrans’ Route 61.
When September service changes go into effect on Tuesday, Route 61 will service ONT every 15 minutes, seven days a week. Both Omnitrans bus stops are located along Terminal Way at Terminals 2 and 4, just east of the baggage claim areas. Riding the bus is convenient and cost-effective, with regular one-way fare for only $1.75.
“Ontario International Airport is a public treasure and it should be more readily accessible by public transit, particularly as we add air service and the number of passengers we serve continues to rise,” said Alan D. Wapner, Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA) president and Omnitrans board member. “We are grateful to Omnitrans for increasing dependable and affordable service for air travelers, greeters and employees alike.”
Beginning at the Pomona Metrolink station, Route 61 runs through Pomona, Montclair, and Ontario, before ending at the Fontana Metrolink station (reverse for westbound.) The first bus arrives in ONT at 4:45 a.m., with the last bus departing at 10:45 p.m.
Omnitrans Route 80 also reaches ONT with hourly service seven days a week, traveling through Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga. For more details on how to ride and to plan your trip, visit www.omnitrans.org.
