Guide to September Service Changes

School is back in session, the leaves will be changing color soon, and the new Bus Book is here!

With service changes effective on Tuesday, September 6th comes long-awaited direct service into Ontario International Airport. Taking into consideration the feedback received from riders and operators, Route 80 will now make two stops directly in front of Terminals 2 and 4. To preserve travel time, Route 80 will no longer be traveling west on Holt Blvd. to Euclid and Sultana Aves. in downtown Ontario (please see the updated map below).  Not to worry, though! Route 61 will continue providing service westbound to downtown Ontario.
