Guide to January 2019 Service Changes

To complement your resolutions for the New Year, Omnitrans is riding into 2019 with better connections, enhanced routing, and “eXpanded” service as part of the usual January service changes, taking effect on Monday, January 7, 2019.

Since its launch in 2014, the sbX Green Line has serviced a 16-mile corridor through San Bernardino and Loma Linda, only on weekdays – until now! Beginning January 7th, the bus rapid transit line will begin operating on Saturdays for your weekend school, work, or entertainment needs. Hours of service on Saturdays will be 7 a.m. through 9 p.m., with buses running every 20 minutes.

While sbX is an express service, bus fare costs just the same as Omnitrans local bus fare. For reference, that’s only $1.75 for a one-way full-fare ride on sbX! Your Omnitrans pass is also valid on sbX.

Because of the increased rapid transit service on sbX on Saturdays, the Route 2, which runs parallel to the sbX Green Line, will now run every 55 minutes on Saturdays, and every 30 minutes on Sundays.

Additional service changes include minor timepoint adjustments to improve transfers and connections. For those changes, see the list below, and don’t forget to check the Bus Book and plan ahead before travel!

  1. Finally… If we are going to get serious about restoring high-quality, dedicated-guideway transportation systems in San Bernardino County, then they have to be available seven days a week and at all hours of the day.

    Saturday service is an excellent step in the right direction.

    The transit agency that operates sbX should avoid using the term, “buses,” however, because the success of the system comes, in large part, from distinguishing it from local buses, which have lower service frequencies and higher travel times.

  2. I hoping and praying that the Omnitrans/Six Green Line would put a stop at Target on E Street and Orange Show Road. This is my wish for 2019 I am praying and hoping for.

    I am sure that if you Omnitrans/Sbx Green Line took a poll you would find that a lot of riders would love a stop there.

  3. Could you PLEASE also run the 290 on Saturdays as well ????
    I’m a real regular passenger who rides daily and works at the Ontario Mills.
    Thank you for your time. And consideration of my suggestion.

  4. Any plans to start Holiday service, owl and extended weekend service to some routes(1,14,66,215,290…)? How soon are you going to deploy fare media, such as TAPCard to facilitate interagency transfers?
    Thanks and Happy Holidays.

    1. Thank you for your comment. We’re always working to obtain the necessary resources to expand our commuter express services on weekends and service on holidays. Inter-agency transfers and a streamlined payment system are also being considered, but are a challenge due to different funding sources from county to county.

  5. Thank you for adjusting the timepoint on Route 8 to help serve Veterans getting to medical appointments. This greatly assists us with timing.
