Last year, Omnitrans introduced Freeway Express Route 208 connecting Downtown San Bernardino and Yucaipa with limited stops along the way at popular destinations and connection points. With the new service changes, Route 208 is introducing two additional trips in the morning and evening – departing eastbound at 6:18 a.m. /7:02 a.m. westbound; and 5:00 p.m. eastbound/6:10 p.m. westbound.

Additionally, the wildly popular Summer Youth Fare is back this June and July! Students 18 and younger who are off of school for the summer can get out and explore for only $1 each way with proof of age. That means that shopping trips to the mall, movie screenings, outings to the park, lunch and coffee with friends are only $1 this summer!

New Bus Line-up at San Bernardino Transit Center

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve operations at the San Bernardino Transit Center (SBTC) and to make transferring to routes even easier, we will be making some changes to locations where buses will park. These changes are based on feedback received from passengers and Operators.

Some of our busier routes with higher trip frequencies and transfers, such as Routes 15WB, 3, 4 and 14 will be moved closer to the Transit Center lobby. Routes 3, 4 and 14 directional stops will be side by side.

This will make transfers easier, and give passengers improved access to the customer service counter, indoor waiting area, bus arrival signs and rest rooms.

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.
