New & Improved OC Bus App Arriving Soon

The popular OC Bus App allows riders to use their smartphones to plan, pay and ride. All pass fares are available and can be use on all fixed routes buses. The app allows users to purchase single and multiple versions for future use.

On November 10, OCTA will release a replacement OC Bus App that contains all these original features and more, including additional user-friendly options and easier navigation:

  • Color-coded tickets for each rider type
  • A bigger QR code for easier scanning
  • In-app notifications to alert riders about OC Bus changes

In addition, full versions of the new app will be available in Spanish and Vietnamese to better serve the needs of diverse Orange County.

Because this is a replacement app, current users will need to download the new version and set up a new account. For a smooth transition, they should use the same email address used with the original account. The new app should be downloaded before the current one expires on December 31, 2021. Passes purchased and not activated on the current version will also expire at that time.
