Omnitrans Offers New Summer Discount for Youth

Riders 18 and under ride one-way for $1 in June and July!

Local youth can get around town a little cheaper this summer, thanks to a special discounted bus fare on Omnitrans. Riders 18 and under will pay just $1 per trip in June and July.

While Omnitrans offers Youth discounts on its 7- day and 31-day bus passes, there was not a youth discount for single trips until this summer. In comparison, the regular one-way cash rate is $1.75; a 1-day pass is $5.

“Summer is a great time to get out and explore,” said Omnitrans spokesperson Wendy Williams. “We hope the discounted summer youth fare will make it more affordable for youth and families to get to the community pool, the library, the mall or the movies.”

The discount is good on all Omnitrans bus routes serving the San Bernardino Valley including 26 local routes, three freeway express routes, five OmniGo community shuttle routes and the sbX bus rapid transit line in San Bernardino and Loma Linda.

During the traditional school year, Omnitrans averages nearly 40,000 youth trips per month. That drops to about half during the summer months.

Students who appear to be close to age 19 should be prepared to show bus drivers proof of age or a high school ID card to prove they are eligible for the discount.

Personalized routing assistance is available at 800-9-OMNIBUS (800-966-6428) or online at www.omnitrans.org.

Omni Kids Go Green!

Tori B. shared this colorful bus with us, complete with driver and passengers. We love the green leaf on the wheel!

At Omnitrans, we support our environment by going green wherever possible. Our bus fleet runs on compressed natural gas (CNG) instead of diesel which reduces particulate matter (PM) emissions by more than 80%. Our agencey Green Team is constantly looking for new and more efficient ways to help our offices reduce, reuse and recycle.

Recently children of some of our employees sent us drawings they made that showed Omnitrans as an earth-friendly agency. We thought we’d share them with you. Enjoy!

Has your child created an Omnitrans themed drawing? We’d love to see it. You can share with us on Facebook at http://facebook.com/omnitrans or email us at juno.carlson@omnitrans.org.
