Omnitrans is a public transportation agency in San Bernardino County, California, United States. The largest transit operator within San Bernardino County, it serves the San Bernardino Valley;[1] the agency was established in 1976 through a joint powers agreement[1] and today includes 15 cities and portions of the unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County. In addition to the southwestern corner of San Bernardino County, Omnitrans provides service to parts of Riverside and Los Angeles Counties. Omnitrans currently carries about 11 million passengers per year. Omnitrans currently operates fixed route bus service, bus rapid transit and a paratransit service for the disabled, “Access.” Omnitrans operates throughout the urbanized area of southwestern San Bernardino County: south of the San Bernardino Mountains, from Upland, Montclair, and Chino in the west to Redlands, California and Yucaipa in the east. The Omnitrans service area covers approximately 480 square miles (1,200 km2).[1]

Services[edit]

Fixed route[edit]

The fixed-route services consist of 28 local fixed routes including one peak-hour only service, two peak-hour trippers, and one regional express route. Routes are operated with 40-foot (12.19 m) buses (and 12 30-foot or 9.1-metre buses) running primarily along major east-west and north-south corridors. Headways vary from 15-minute to hourly service, with approximately 18 hours of service on weekdays, 13 hours on Saturdays, and 12 hours on Sundays. Omnitrans recently had major changes in the West Valley by adjusting routes to run more North to South (80s) and East to West (60s).

Bus rapid transit[edit]

Omnitrans developed a bus rapid transit route titled sbX that traverses the San Bernardino Valley from north to south.[3]

OmniGo[edit]

OmniGo is a general-public circular fixed route service for the low density/low demand cities of Chino Hills, Yucaipa, and Grand Terrace.[3]

Demand response[edit]

Access ADA Service[edit]

Access provides public transportation services for persons who are physically or cognitively unable to use regular bus service (ADA certified and/or Omnitrans Disability Identification Card holders). Access operates curb to- curb service with minibuses or vans, complementing the Omnitrans fixed-route bus system; the Access service area is defined as up to 34 mile (1.2 km) on either side of an existing fixed route. Service is available on the same days and at the same times that fixed-route services operate.[3]

Former Services[edit]

OmniLink[edit]

Omnitrans formerly operated OmniLink, a demand-response service that operated in Yucaipa and Chino Hills. OmniLink ceased operation 29 August 2014.[5]

Future[edit]

Omnitrans will operate the Arrow commuter rail line between San Bernardino and Redlands.

Omnitrans's main goal is to be a new electric bus by 2020.
