Omnitrans, the largest public transit agency in San Bernardino County, has begun several service changes, including new, realigned, and eliminated routes.
A small pilot project has also started, and some service that was cut back because of COVID-19 has been restored, according to a statement on the transit agency’s website.
All of the changes began Tuesday.
“We’re pleased to welcome our customers back with enhanced cleaning and increased frequency on our most popular routes,” said Omnitrans chief executive officer and general manager Erin Rogers in a statement. “This service change implementation maximizes system efficiency to prepare our agency for future transit needs and financial sustainability.”
Twenty-seven of the agency’s 32 routes have been changed, including the resumption of 20-minute service on routes one, three, four, 14, 61, 66, Omnitrans’ core network.
Also, seven routes have been eliminated and four introduced. The new routes will provide connections to Eastvale and the Ontario-East Metrolink station, a first for the transit agency.
Omnitrans has also begun OmniRide microtransit service in Chino Hills and parts of Chino. This allows customers to make reservations on the OmniRide On-Demand mobile app and be picked up and delivered on weekdays, according to the statement.
