04/28/20 – Fare suspension has been extended through May 31, 2020.
04/08/20 – Starting Tuesday, April 8, 2020. All Omnitrans customers traveling for essential needs are now required to wear a face covering upon entering and while riding any Omnitrans bus, effective immediately. > READ MORE
As we continue to navigate through this challenging time, the safety of our employees and customers remains our top priority. In order to maintain lifeline transportation services while supporting public health efforts, Omnitrans will be implementing further service reductions effective Monday, April 13, 2020 (listed below) as people continue to stay at home to combat the spread of COVID-19.
OTHER ADJUSTMENTS IN PLACE: Effective today, April 6, 2020, no more than 20 customers can be onboard large buses at one time in order to allow sufficient social distancing. All customers must EXIT the bus when the route has made one complete loop to prevent non-essential travel without a destination. Rear boarding and exiting only (except for those with mobility devices) and fare suspension on all Omnitrans services is extended through Thursday, April 30, 2020. (Update: Fare suspension extended through May 31, 2020.)
