Just in time for the busy holiday shopping season, enhanced transit connectivity and comfortable amenities are awaiting customers at the refurbished Ontario Civic Center Transfer Station. The public is invited to join Omnitrans, the city of Ontario, and local dignitaries to celebrate the grand opening of the Station on Tuesday, December 4 at 10:00 a.m. in the Ontario City Hall Courtyard at 303 East B Street.
A joint project of Omnitrans and the city of Ontario, the station is located between D Street and Holt Avenue along Euclid, Holt, and Sultana Avenues.
“The grand opening of this Transit Station marks the latest milestone in a partnership that has spanned nearly four decades, since our agency’s inception,” said CEO/General Manager Milo Victoria. “The end result is more transportation options for the community, and a more enjoyable riding experience for our customers.”
Five Omnitrans routes — 61, 63, 80, 81, and 83 — serve the station between Ontario and the cities of Chino, Fontana, Montclair, Pomona, Rancho Cucamonga and Upland. Bus stop relocation and consolidation, along with bus shelter and accessibility enhancements at seven stop locations at the station, will help to ensure pleasant journeys for the more than 500 passengers who board buses at the transfer station daily.
The $520,000 project was funded by Federal Transit Administration Section 5309 discretionary funds, supplemented by State Transit Assistance. Work on the Ontario Civic Center Transfer Station was completed by Micon Construction.
