New HOV Lanes and Omnitrans Route 215

(2/26/13) – IE Transit Talking Points Short

Transportation officials have begun the construction of an HOV lane on a 7 ½ mile stretch of the I-215 Freeway between San Bernardino and Riverside. The new lane is expected to be completed later in the summer. Omnitrans should expect improved productivity for the existing express bus Route 215 which runs through the corridor linking the two downtown areas. Private sector buses headed through the corridor can expect better efficiency with the presence of the HOV lane. Let’s get those bus routes into the HOV lane and get them moving.
