Omnitrans introduces on-demand transit option in Chino, Chino Hills

Aug. 27, 2020
The micro-transit pilot, OmniRide, will be available weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the designated service area.

Omnitrans will launch OmniRide, a micro-transit pilot project, Sept. 8, 2020.

The on-demand transit service will be available to Omnitrans customers in Chino and Chino Hills.

“It is exciting to implement this pilot project in Chino and Chino Hills to offer new, personalized service to the community,” said Omnitrans CEO/General Manager Erin Rogers. “Omnitrans is meeting the challenge of our region’s evolving transit needs.”

Using a free mobile app, OmniRide On-Demand, customers reserve a trip to and from any location in the OmniRide service area. The app will direct customers to the nearest virtual stop and arrive for pickup within 15 minutes before proceeding to their requested drop-off point, similar to Uber or Lyft service.

OmniRide service is open to the public and vehicles are accessible to people with disabilities. Service is available on weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. OmniRide fare is $4 per single ride ($2 for seniors, veterans and people with disabilities), and comes with a day pass for Omnitrans fixed route service. Customers have the option of paying by credit card when making their reservation or paying cash onboard.

Early adopters of the service will have a special incentive to use OmniRide - Omnitrans is offering a free ride with the purchase of a ride during the month of September.
