Omnitrans today announces Transit as the official mobility app for the San Bernardino Valley. Transit counts millions of active users in more than 200 cities worldwide, including millions in Southern California.
San Bernardino, CA – Upon launching the app, Omnitrans bus riders see nearby options and departure times in big text and bright colors. Users can easily navigate the San Bernardino Valley, aided by accurate real-time bus ETAs, trip planning, and step-by-step navigation with Transit’s GO feature. Transit users can also request and pay for Uber or Lyft rides within the app.
Transit also offers real-time tracking and trip planning for dozens of additional agencies in Southern California, including Metro, LADOT, Metrolink, Big Blue Bus, Riverside Transit Agency, and more. This partnership between Omnitrans and Transit offers a comprehensive, easy-to-use and widely adopted app for riders to navigate the whole region. Under this agreement, Omnitrans will also receive anonymized data and customizations to better serve the public, such as the ability to send important information directly to riders via Transit’s home screen.
“Transit delivers what our customers want—easy trip planning and real-time bus tracking in a single app,” said P. Scott Graham, Omnitrans CEO/General Manager. “Endorsement comes at no cost to the Agency but provides a great benefit to our riders.”
By endorsing Transit as its official app, Omnitrans joins dozens of other public transit agencies across North America that have partnered with the app, including Silicon Valley’s VTA, Boston’s MBTA, Baltimore’s MDOT MTA, St. Louis Metro, Tampa Bay’s PSTA and Montreal’s STM.
“Partnering with a single app that prioritizes transit makes it clear to riders where they can go for information,” said David Block-Schachter, Chief Business Officer of Transit. “We’re excited to work with Omnitrans and see more people using Transit as part of their daily routine.”
