OCTA CEO Champions Sustainability & Regional Transportation

During the past few weeks, OCTA CEO Darrell Johnson participated in meetings that furthered the cause of public transportation.

At the end of July, he participated in a virtual conference hosted by Global Mass Transit entitled Clean Buses in the U.S. This conference focused on the federal government’s plan to transition to a 100 percent clean, zero-emission bus fleet. As a panelist, Johnson provided an update on OCTA’s zero-emission bus efforts highlighting OCTA’s hydrogen fuel-cell electric and battery-electric pilot programs.

More recently, Johnson attended the virtual Bay Area County Transportation Agencies (BACTA) Executive Roundtable. In his role as Chair of Mobility 21, he joined Mobility 21 Executive Director Jenny Larios in presenting an update on the overall mission of Mobility 21 and its advocacy role providing a voice for transportation priorities throughout the Southern California region.
