    First/Last Mile Shuttle Rail Shuttles

    Omnitrans will hold public hearings this month to gain your feedback on several proposed service and fare changes. Is your route impacted? Read on for details!

    Omnitrans proposes two First/Last Mile Pilot Shuttles to expand connectivity between (1) the Rancho Cucamonga Metrolink Station and the Ontario International Airport and (2) rail services at the San Bernardino Transit Center and Downtown San Bernardino. Omnitrans is seeking feedback on two options: a fixed route shuttle or an OmniRide microtransit route to downtown San Bernardino.

    Fare Capping

    Omnitrans also is proposing the implementation of fare capping this fall. What is fare capping? It limits the amount a customer pays to travel for a day, week, or month to the cost of that multi-use pass. Fare capping upgrades passengers paid fares to the next pass level once they have paid the fare equivalent of a Day, 7-Day, or 31-Day pass (see graphic above). Fare Capping achieves social equity by removing upfront cost barriers when purchasing multi-use passes.

    OmniRide Senior and Disabled customers could receive a $1 per ride fare discount.

    Reduction/Subsidy For Senior and Disabled Customers for OmniRide

    Omnitrans proposes a fare reduction for Senior & Disabled (S&D) customers who ride OmniRide microtransit service. Currently S&D customers pay $2.00 per ride on OmniRide. The proposal is to reduce all OmniRide S&D fares to $1.00 per ride, utilizing Measure I CTSA funds for this subsidy.

    Boundary Expansion For OmniRide Chino/Chino Hills

    Omnitrans also would like your thoughts on the proposal to slightly expand the microtransit service boundary for OmniRide Chino Hills. The proposed expansion of OmniRide Chino Hills includes new service to the large distribution and fulfilment centers along Euclid Avenue between Kimball Avenue and Pine Avenue. (See the proposed expanded service area in yellow).

    Boundary Expansion For OmniRide Upland

    Omnitrans also seeks public input on the proposal to slightly expand the microtransit service boundary for OmniRide Upland. The proposed expansion of OmniRide Upland includes service to the Montclair Place in Montclair as well as two shopping centers in Rancho Cucamonga on Carnelian Avenue between 19th Street and Baseline Road. Expanding OmniRide Upland into Rancho Cucamonga will create a new transfer between the on-demand service and Route 87 on Carnelian Avenue. (See the proposed expanded service area in yellow).
