The OC Bus Mobile App: Easy Just Got Easier

When OCTA introduced the OC Bus app, people welcomed the convenience of using their smartphones to plan, pay, and ride. Now, after listening to your suggestions during the past couple of years, we’ve introduced a fresh version, OC Bus Mobile 2.0, that’s packed with improvements.

Just like the first version, all pass fares are available and can be used on all fixed route buses. In addition, the updated app lets you purchase a single ride, multiple tickets for future use, and even split payment methods. You can also make a purchase, manage your account, and view your purchase history by logging into your account online.

New to the app? It’s super easy to download and get started here. Already have the original OC Bus app? Simply upgrade to OC Bus Mobile 2.0 using the update procedure on your phone.

Since the original app was introduced systemwide in October 2016, more than 94,000 OC Bus riders have downloaded it to make their bus-riding experience easier, faster, and more convenient.
