New Name, Same Great Service: BRAVO! is Now OC Bus Rapid

OCTA’s popular limited-stop bus service is transitioning from BRAVO! to OC Bus Rapid. In addition to the new name and new OC Bus Rapid signs, OCTA is rolling out new buses. The service and stop locations will remain the same.

Since the limited-stop service began more than a decade ago, the term rapid has become common among transit agencies nationwide. This change aligns with OCTA’s acquisition of new buses and adopts the widely recognized term for limited-stop service.

The change will be implemented one route at a time. The first OC Bus Rapid took to the road Monday, March 18 on Route 529 along Beach Boulevard. Learn more about OC Bus Rapid here.
