Public Transit

Omnitrans BusAs the County Transportation Commission, SANBAG plays a key role in mass transportation. SANBAG distributes many of the funds for public transit service and is responsible for oversight of all transit service in San Bernardino County.

Seven operators serve the county area. SANBAG provides financial support to six transit operators. (SANBAG does not provide funding to the Foothill Transit Authority). This support allows senior and disabled riders to enjoy lower fares and expanded service.

Transit information is now available online where you can find information about bus or rail schedules, fares, stops, maps and much more on traveling by bus or rail.  Log onto IE511 and use the Transit Trip Planner powered by Google.  Most of the Southern California transit operators provide their trip planning into the Google transit trip planner. In addition, find your Southern California transit operator by using the IE511 transit tool.

PASTACC produces a special Transit Directory for seniors, persons with disabilities, and persons of limited means.
