Omnitrans Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Fare and Service Changes

Omnitrans welcomes your input on proposed fare and service changes at our upcoming public hearing and outreach sessions, scheduled April 2-10, 2019 throughout the San Bernardino Valley (schedule below). Proposed changes coincide with regularly scheduled service changes in September 2019 and May 2020.

Proposals for Consideration

  • To maintain bus service levels as operating costs rise, Omnitrans recommends a fare change effective September 2019. It has been five years since the last fare increase, in 2014. The chart below details the proposed fare changes:
  Current Fare Proposed Fare
Single Ride
Full-Fare $1.75 $2.00
Senior/Disability/Medicare/Veteran $0.75 $0.90
10-Pack of Single Rides
Full-Fare $16.00 $18.00
Senior/Disability/Medicare/Veteran $7.00 $8.50
1-Day Pass
Full-Fare $5.00 $6.00
Senior/Disability/Medicare/Veteran $2.25 $2.75
10-Pack of 1-Day Passes
Full-Fare $45.00 $54.00
Senior/Disability/Medicare/Veteran $20.00 $25.00
7-Day Pass
Full-Fare $18.00 $20.00
Senior/Disability/Medicare/Veteran $8.00 $9.00
Youth $14.00 $15.00
31-Day Pass
Full-Fare $55.00 $60.00
Senior/Disability/Medicare/Veteran $27.50 $30.00
Youth $41.00 $45.00
  • Eliminate sale of 7-Day passes onboard the bus to improve passenger boarding time and avert delays. 7-Day still would be available for sale at the San Bernardino Transit Center, at bus pass outlets (see Bus Book pg. 2 for list of outlets), and digitally on the Token Transit app. (September 2019)
  • Eliminate Freeway Express Route 208 connecting Yucaipa, Redlands, and San Bernardino due to low ridership. (September 2019)
  • Adjust routing on Route 22 to serve the new Renaissance Marketplace in Rialto. View Map (September 2019)
  • Adjust routing on the current Route 11, and rename to Route 12. The route adjustment would directly connect Fontana Metrolink Station and Cal State University, San Bernardino, and serve major employment centers, including Amazon warehouses and the Renaissance Marketplace. Route would no longer connect at the San Bernardino Transit Center. View Map (September 2019)
  • Increase morning and evening frequency of Route 83 from 60 to 30 minutes. (May 2020)
