Officials at the public bus agency Omnitrans are touting the latest in their efforts give future riders of its developing transit service a better look at how that service will be different than regular bus service.

Crews in the last month have been installing electronic ticket vending machines, security cameras, arrival/departure signs and emergency call lines at the Cal State San Bernardino station of the SBX rapid-transit line, a dedicated route bus service planned to go from CSUSB to Loma Linda.

The machines have also been going in at the route’s Kendall Drive and Palm Avenue park-and-ride facility.

Omnitrans is still building the route, which is estimated to cost $192 million.

The planned SBX system, the first-of-its-kind express bus service in the Inland Empire, will span north San Bernardino and Loma Linda. Civic leaders have pitched the project as a boon for the area.
