The Point: For $3 or less, inland commuters can cut through 91 traffic on Route 200 while enjoying free Wi-Fi, charging ports and comfortable seats.

Starting January 14, Riverside and San Bernardino County residents will have another option for reliable, reduced-stress travel on the State Route 91 corridor.

Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) Route 200 will connect the new San Bernardino Transit Center with Disneyland and points in between using CommuterLink express buses featuring Wi-Fi, charging ports, and comfortable seats.

Route 200 will make stops in downtown Riverside (Lemon St./University Ave.), Riverside-Downtown Metrolink station, the Galleria at Tyler, Riverside-La Sierra Metrolink station, and the Village at Orange before arriving at Disneyland.

The express buses will utilize the 91 Express Lanes in Riverside and Orange counties to bypass traffic congestion and provide a more reliable trip. Route 200 buses were purchased by RCTC as part of the 91 Project, fulfilling a key promise to expand public transit alternatives in the 91 corridor with the new express lanes.  RCTC is funding the initial two years of operations of Route 200 with voter-approved Measure A funds.

One-way trips on Route 200 are $3 (cash only) as with all RTA CommuterLink routes, while a monthly pass is $75. Lower fares are available for children, seniors and disabled customers.  Additionally, western Riverside County residents and San Bernardino County residents can apply to receive $2/day incentives for riding Route 200 to work. These fares offer a considerably lower cost of travel compared to other modes of travel along the 91 corridor and parking fees travelers may encounter at their destinations.
