Public Transportation

The San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) plays a key role in public transportation.  The SBCTA distributes many of the funds for public transit service and is responsible for oversight of all transit service throughout San Bernardino County.

Seven operators currently serve San Bernardino County and the SBCTA provides financial support to six of those transit operators – we do not provide funding to Foothill Transit Authority.  Along with other added benefits, this support allows senior and disabled riders to enjoy lower fares and expanded service.

Transit information is now available online where you can find information about bus or rail schedules, fares, stops, maps, and much more whether you are planning to travel by bus or rail.

In addition to visiting each operators site for information, you can also log on to IE511 (www.ie511.org/trip-planners) and use their Southern California Bus/Rail Trip Planner.
