OCTA is planning for the future by exploring express bus service options on I-5 and SR-55. The Freeway Bus Rapid Transit Concept Study will identify improvements to infrastructure and transportation solutions for potential Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) routes and identify stops along each corridor. The I-5 route is approximately 30 miles from the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo Station to the Fullerton Park and Ride, while the north-south route is 12 miles along the SR-55 from the Santa Ana Regional Transit Center to Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach.
The study is expected to identify ways to improve freeway traffic flow, maximize transit and ridesharing, and identify long-term solutions to connect underserved and emerging populations within the study corridors.
To learn more, join OCTA for a virtual public meeting on October 14 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. You’ll have the opportunity to meet the team and ask questions. Click here to register.
