The first step to exploring Downtown is getting here! Downtown is easily accessible by multiple modes of transportation, whether by car, rail or bus. Additionally, Downtown’s revitalization efforts include even more transportation additions and improvements, stimulating the downtown economy and community by bringing in residents, visitors, employees and more.
- Interstate 215 Freeway
The I-215 Freeway runs north and south right through Downtown, and it’s getting bigger and better! Improvements through the corridor between Orange Show Road and University Parkway include the addition of one carpool lane and one general-use lane in each direction on I-215 and connector ramps between the I-215 and SR-210.

Omnitrans is the public transit agency serving the San Bernardino Valley since 1976. With multiple bus lines going to and through Downtown, Omnitrans buses make it convenient to get around.
- San Bernardino International Airport
The San Bernardino International Airport provides a wide range of services for aviation and aircraft needs, and recently completed a redesigned Passenger Terminal Facility in anticipation of future passenger airlines services.
Future Transportation Options
- sbX Rapid Transit Line
sbX is a rapid speed, innovative bus transit service to link communities throughout the San Bernardino Valley and provide an efficient and cost effective rapid transit option for travelers. Two transit stations along this route are planned for Downtown San Bernardino. Led by Omnitrans, this project will start in 2011 and be completed sometime in 2013.
- Redlands First Mile and Passenger Rail Project
Linking the cities of San Bernardino and Redlands, the first mile of the proposed Redlands Light Rail Project will provide for a Metrolink extension to improve commuter travel to and from home, work, school, shopping and entertainment. Led by San Bernardino Associated Governments, this project is scheduled to start sometime in 2015.
- Intermodal Transit Center and Village
Omintrans is now working on plans for an Intermodal Transit Center and Village. The proposed five acre site is located just south of Rialto Avenue, between E and F Streets. The Transit Center will serve as a transfer point for bus routes serving the Downtown area, with future connections to the sbX Bus Rapid Transit system, proposed Metrolink extension, and proposed Redlands Light Rail System. Anticipated construction starts in early 2012 and completion in late 2013.
