Local Vets encouraged to get military I.D. cards in preparation for new Veterans fare

In appreciation of the men and women who have served in our nation’s armed forces, Omnitrans is honored to offer veterans a new discounted fare and bus passes beginning January 5, 2015. The new Veterans fare will be accepted on all Omnitrans routes including the sbX rapid line, 215 freeway express, 25 local bus routes, and 5 OmniGo community shuttle routes. It is not valid for Access ADA curb-to-curb service.

VETERAN FARE PRICES

Veterans will be able to purchase veteran passes for 50% less than the full fare. The cost of the new veteran passes will be:

  • Cash $0.75
  • Day Pass $2.25
  • 7-Day Pass $8.00
  • 31-Day Pass $27.50.

DISCOUNT ELIGIBILITY WITH PROPER I.D.

Under the new policy, veterans are required to show a valid Veterans ID card while boarding in order to receive discounted fare. Acceptable ID cards include:

County Veteran ID cards are available at the Hesperia, Rancho Cucamonga, and San Bernardino offices of Veterans Affairs free of charge.

Active duty military

Active duty military personnel may ride Omnitrans buses for free, excluding Access curb-to-curb service. They must wear the appropriate uniform at the time of boarding and present a valid U.S. Unformed Services ID card indicating active service or a Common Access card indicating uniformed services or active duty.
