Presenting the 91 Express Lanes Annual Report

Now online, the 91 Express Lanes Annual Report for 2018 showcases a year of innovation and exceeding expectations.

In 2018, customers enjoyed their first full year of 18 miles of free-flowing reliable travel thanks to the 8-mile Riverside County extension completed by the Riverside County Transportation Commission the year before.

Response exceeded expectations as trips rose from 14.4 to 16.7 million, an increase of more than 16 percent. Nearly 19,000 new customers chose the 91 Express Lanes as their trusted connection to family, jobs, and the things that matter most.

In keeping with the philosophy that today’s momentum leads to tomorrow’s moments, OCTA began installing a new state-of-the-art electronic tolling and traffic management system paid entirely by toll revenues.

Also, Fitch Ratings upgraded the debt from A to A+, reflecting the tremendous investment value of the express lanes.

The 91 Express Lanes continues to be a model of success in Orange County and the rest of the world. View the annual report here.
