  1. I took the DNC Southbound on Thursday the 20th. The driver turned east in Rialto at E St. and picked me and several passengers up just east of Rialto and E St. He continued east on Rialto until turning South and making his way west back to E St. to continue the route as normal. The complete opposite of the diagram in this notice.

    1. Harry, you are correct. The detour has changed to travel on Arrowhead, east of E St. Apologies for the miscommunication.

  3. Harry, you are correct. The detour has changed to go down Arrowhead, which is east of E St. Apologies for the miscommunication. We have modified the map in this page.

  4. It would be nice to have signs to tell one where the SBx will stop on Rialto. I missed one bus due to not knowing where to wait and tried to flag down the bus driver but he did not stop.
