Omnitrans works closely with local law enforcement agencies to ensure ensure the safety of our passengers in the event of an emergency.  Yesterday, the San Bernardino Police Department’s SWAT unit practiced training drills with one of our Omnitrans buses. The team was able to thoroughly familiarize themselves with our coaches, both inside and out, and to strategize action plans for different scenarios.

Police crack down on motorists in sbX bus lanes

San Bernardino Polics Department cracks down on motorists in bus lanes

San Bernardino Polics Department tweet warns motorists that entering Bus Only lanes is dangerous and costly.

The San Bernardino Police Department is cracking down on motorists who cross the sbX Bus Only lanes. In a recent tweet, the SBPD warned drivers that the infraction is both dangerous and costly. The minimum fine for entering a Bus Only lane is $341!

New candlesticks, yellow posts with reflectors like the ones shown here, are  being installed as an additional safety measure at various high traffic locations in San Bernardino. The candlesticks will serve as an added visibility feature to prohibit drivers from crossing into Bus Only lanes, which are also marked by double yellow lines.

Remember, when driving along the corridor, you can still access all your favorite businesses by obeying traffic signs and safely making turns where indicated.

Never risk your life or the lives of others by entering a dedicated bus lane.
