Guide to January 2017 Service Changes

bus-book-cover

The new year will welcome Omnitrans riders with new service enhancements and more connectivity! Beginning on Sunday, January 8th, Route 215 customers can expect changes implemented by Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) as part of a project that will introduce new and upgraded bus stops at more than 20 central locations. The project is designed to deliver world-class service to popular destinations as the Riverside area continues to grow and expand.

The existing Riverside Downtown Terminal will shut down and Route 215, our Freeway Express route traveling from the San Bernardino Transit Center to Downtown Riverside, will make adjustments to better serve our riders traveling to the area. The new stop for Route 215 will be located at University and Lemon, with one additional connecting stop at the Metrolink Station in Downtown Riverside on Vine Street (see map below). This change will be effective on Sunday, January 8th

Omnitrans Proposes Service Change to Route 215

Omnitrans is proposing a service change for early next year – and we want your feedback! The service changes would affect Freeway Express Route 215, which connects passengers between San Bernardino and Riverside with limited stops. Due to the closing of the Riverside Transit Center, plans are to reroute Route 215 to serve the Downtown Riverside Metrolink Station on Vine Street. The map below illustrates these changes:

To gather public comment, Omnitrans staff will be at the San Bernardino Transit Center on Thursday, November 3, 2016 from 6 a.m. – 6 p.m., near the Route 215 and 290 stops. In addition to the proposed changes, we will be listening to your feedback on all Omnitrans services, with specific focus on the recently implemented mid-day Route 290 service.

If approved, the Route 215 change would become effective on January 8, 2017 to coincide with Riverside Transit’s (RTA) transit center closure.

The San Bernardino Transit Center is located at 599 W Rialto Ave, San Bernardino, CA 92410.

Bus stop QR codes offer live arrival times

Omnitrans new bus stop QR codesOur Stops & Stations guys have been hard at work installing two new signs at each of our stops, beginning in the Fontana area. A new bus stop sign with the Omnitrans logo and Route number is located at the top of each pole. The lower part of the pole now displays our new NexTrip sign with information on how to get real-time bus arrival predictions via text, website or phone.

The NexTrip sign also contains a QR code prominently featured in the bottom right corner. If you have a QR code/barcode scanner app on your cell phone, you can simply scan the code for instant bus arrival information. Free QR code/barcode scanning apps are available on iTunes and Google Play.

Check out the video above for a quick tutorial on how to use our new bus stop QR codes. Happy scanning!
