Southern Calif.-based Omnitrans has selected Transit as the official mobility app for the San Bernardino Valley.

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/GM. “Endorsement comes at no cost to the agency but provides a great benefit to our riders.”

Transit is available to download for iPhone and Android at www.transitapp.com.
