As part of OC Bus 360°, the comprehensive action plan developed to help sustain bus ridership, the upcoming June service change makes minor adjustments to correspond with summer demand. The seasonal changes are designed to improve connections and on-time performance.
Along with the minor schedule adjustments, additional service will be added to Routes 1 and 89 during peak beach-traffic times. Route 1, for instance, will now stay on Pacific Coast Highway instead of making a stop at the Laguna Beach bus station.
The Orange County Fair Express also returns this year from July 14 to August 12 to transport thousands of people via OC Bus to the OC Fair. The OC Fair Express service will consist of nine routes that operate across the county to deliver people to the fair on weekends, helping them avoid traffic and save money in the process. This year, Route 691 from South Orange County will be relocated to the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo Metrolink station instead of the Junipero Serra Park and Ride in San Juan Capistrano.

Bus service changes are routinely made three times a year in February, June and October to ensure riders receive the most efficient level of service.
