Metrolink riders traveling to Calif.’s Ontario International Airport (ONT) now have a new mobility option with sponsored Lyft rides from four Metrolink stations and Omnitrans transit centers through a partnership with the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA).

The program covers up to $35 off each Lyft ride connecting ONT with one of the Metrolink stations at Montclair, Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, and Ontario-East. SBCTA is funding the $396,000 pilot program to increase public transportation ridership servicing ONT.

The Metrolink Montclair, Upland, and Rancho Cucamonga stations are on the San Bernardino Line, while the Ontario-East Station is part Metrolink’s Riverside Line.

Fifty-two Metrolink trains make stops Monday through Friday at the stations where the free Lyft service is offered. Customers also have weekend options on the San Bernardino Line where 20 Metrolink trains stop at the stations on Saturday and six trains make stops on Sunday.
