OCTA’s Diversity Outreach Team Shares Good News about OC Transportation

At events throughout Orange County, OCTA’s Diversity Outreach Team talked with many different groups about the positive transportation options coming their way. Topics included the new OC Bus 64X express service, which will travel on Bolsa Avenue and First Street from Huntington Beach through the heart of Little Saigon in Westminster and to Santa Ana and Tustin, OC Streetcar, now in the pipeline to receive federal funding, and plans for improvements to the Interstate 405 (I-405).

The team visited Orange County’s two Tet Festivals, the Asian Business Association of Orange County’s (ABAOC) annual Lunar New Year event, and senior groups.
