ConnecTransit Plan

Learn about the ConnecTransit Plan to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, strengthen the economy, and improve public health and the environment in disadvantaged communities.

ConnecTransit Plan

ConnecTransit is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment — particularly in disadvantaged communities.

Through outreach and engagement activities, focused on reaching and listening to communities and individuals with the greatest mobility needs, the ConnecTransit Plan team created a community‐driven sustainable transportation equity plan that clearly defines community‐identified transit‐related needs within the San Bernardino Valley region (including in disadvantaged communities). The plan prioritizes transit and related community projects for implementation that are equitable and that increase the sustainability of the transportation system.

Plan Recommendations

As the Plan team began to identify potential projects, policies, and programmatic interventions that may result in the desired equitable impacts, initial concepts were organized into three (3) categories of types of investments required for implementation.

Specific projects and solutions were further sub-categorized as shown below.  For more information on potential solutions, implementation considerations, and Omnitrans’ existing/planned initiatives, see Plan Recommendations and Appendix F in the ConnecTransit Plan.

Omnitrans is seeking additional funding sources to implement the projects recommended in the plan.
