OCTA Hosts California Transportation Commission

Earlier this month, OCTA hosted the May meeting of the California Transportation Commission (CTC) at the agency’s headquarters in Orange. The CTC is responsible for programming and allocating funds for the construction of highway, passenger rail, transit and active transportation improvements throughout California.

In his welcoming remarks, Chair Tam Nguyen commented on OCTA’s transportation vision. “Our commitment is not just to enhance mobility but to ensure that our transportation network is environmentally friendly and resilient to meet the challenges of tomorrow,” he said. “We look forward to collaborating with the commission and all stakeholders to turn this vision into reality.”

CEO Darrell Johnson provided an overview of OCTA’s projects, programs, and initiatives, including coastal rail resiliency, zero emissions by 2040 and the OC Streetcar Project. He also thanked the CTC for the more than $137 million the CTC has allocated over the past year to projects that help keep Orange County moving.
