In support of the National Orange Show Fair’s 100th Anniversary, Omnitrans’ 1-year-old sbX bus rapid transit line will offer expanded weekend service April 24 – 26.
“The National Orange Show Fair is among the biggest annual events in our community. We are happy to make getting there a little easier by expanding our sbX service through the weekend,” explained Omnitrans spokesperson Wendy Williams.
The sbX line normally operates on weekdays only from 6 am to 8 pm. National Orange Show Fair weekend service hours will be:
- Friday, April 24: 6 am to 11 pm
- Saturday, April 25: Noon to 11 pm
- Sunday, April 26: Noon to 8 pm
sbX vehicles will run at 15 to 30 minute frequencies during the weekend. A detailed weekend schedule is available online at sbX NOS Schedule. The station at Inland Center Mall (North Mall Way) is adjacent to the National Orange Show grounds.
In partnership with NOS, Omnitrans is distributing coupons on board sbX and regular Omnitrans buses that offer $2 off admission to the event. “We are excited to team up with Omnitrans and hope to see many sbX riders at our 100th fair,” said Alan Conrad, NOS Director of Production and Marketing. More information on the fair is available on the NOS website.
“The Inland Empire 66ers baseball team also has a home stand that weekend, so we invite fans to hop on sbX to take in a game,” said Williams. The sbX station at E and Rialto is a short walk from the ballpark. More information at: www.ie66ers.com
