Para información en español, por favor haga clic aquí.

Omnitrans has proposed routing and scheduling modifications to several routes later in 2018 and 2019. Because these changes impact you, our route planning team will be holding public meetings in April to obtain your valuable feedback.

Up for discussion are a wide spectrum of proposals including:

  • Adding Saturday service on sbX in San Bernardino and Loma Linda with a corresponding reduction on local Route 2 weekend service
  • Modifying Route 14 service in Downtown San Bernardino to reduce duplication, improve transfer connections, and improve on-time performance
  • Extending Route 83 service in Upland to include a loop to better serve the Colonies Crossroads
  • Rerouting Route 86 service in Ontario to serve Bon View Avenue including the Dorothy A Quesada Community Center and Baldy View Regional Occupation Program (Baldy View ROP) instead of Campus Avenue between Francis Avenue and Mission Avenue
  • Eliminating the regular acceptance of pennies as a form of payment on board
  • Adding the ability to purchase 10-packs of single-ride fares on the mobile payment platform

These proposed changes are part of Omnitrans’ continuous efforts to meet the needs and priorities of our passengers and evolve as our communities grow. Additionally, Omnitrans is seeking funds to install racks that hold three bikes instead of two on all of our buses, as well as secure bicycle parking at transit centers. Tell us what you think!

By improving directness of service, shortening travel times and simplifying the system design, the upcoming September 8th service changes are designed to enhance the passenger experience. Here’s a few of the highlights.

The new San Bernardino Transit Center provides much needed amenities for Omnitrans’ largest transfer location, which serves 6,000 riders per day. In addition to 12 Omnitrans routes and sbX, passengers can connect with Mountain Transit , Victor Valley Transit Authority and, in late 2016, Metrolink.

The new Omnitrans Route 290 connects downtown San Bernardino, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center Ontario Mills and the Montclair Transit Center. This route cuts travel time in half, compared to similar local bus service, during peak hours on weekdays. There’s also free Wi-Fi onboard! You even can try Route 290 FREE September 8th – 11th!

Fans of San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino will be happy to discover that Route 1 now extends to North Victoria Avenue. The stop places riders just outside this popular landmark.

West Valley riders will notice old their old routes have become more streamlined, requiring fewer transfers. Thanks to the addition of five new routes, travel times have been significantly shortened as well.

Have questions about navigating the new routes? We’re here to help. Omnitrans ambassadors will be at the San Bernardino Transit Center, the Chaffey College Transit Center, the Ontario Transit Center, the Montclair Transit Center, the Chino Transit Center and Ontario Mills during peak hours on September 8th and 9th.
