OC Flex Discount Makes It Easier to Leave the Car Home

Taking the car can be an expensive hassle, especially during a group outing.

Fortunately, there’s OC Flex for safe, cost-effective travel to the mall, movies, restaurants, errands, and fun summer events.

OC Flex is OCTA’s on-demand, curb-to-curb shared shuttle serving parts of Aliso Viejo, Mission Viejo, and Laguna Niguel. Right now, group rides are half price when up to four tickets are purchased together through the OC Flex App. Groups can take unlimited rides all day throughout the zone at a special promotional price of $4.50 for two, $6.75 for three and $9 for four riders.

Here are few destination ideas:

Teens 14+ can ride independently with professional drivers who have undergone rigorous background checks and safety training. Kaleidoscope in Mission Viejo provides entertainment and food to keep them busy.

The Sunday farmer’s market at Plaza de la Paz Shopping Center has everything needed for a picnic. With unlimited rides on OC Flex, it’s easy to pick up the food and then ride to a favorite al fresco spot.

Lunch or dinner with friends or coworkers is more relaxing when someone else drives. For only $9, a team of four can travel all day together with multiple stops during the promotional period, which ends August 31.
