Economic Growth Drove 91 Express Lanes Success in 2019

Since 2003, OCTA has owned and operated the 91 Express Lanes (91 EL), a two-lane managed-lane facility in each direction in the median of SR-91. 

In 2019, growth in the regional economy, low unemployment, and job creation in Orange and Riverside counties encouraged more people to choose the 91 EL for safe, reliable, predictable travel. As a result, traffic volumes and toll revenues were at historically high levels.

For the 12-month period ending December 2019, traffic volumes reached 17.7 million and increased by 2.7 percent over the same period the prior year. During the same time period, the number of accounts increased by 5,766, and the number of transponders in circulation increased by 9,284.
