Orange County’s Transportation Future Includes Today’s Teens

OCTA’s Teen Council is a win-win for participating high school students and Orange County.

Suspended during the pandemic, the Teen Council has resumed and OCTA is recruiting students interested in transportation-related discussions and projects. Those selected will be part of projects focused on transportation planning, marketing, ridesharing, other transit modes, environmental equity and impact.

Students gain professional development and leadership skills while OCTA benefits by opening lines of communication with future transportation influencers of Orange County.

Eligible applicants must be entering grades 9-12 at any public or private high school in Orange County in Fall ’23 and be between the ages of 13 and 18 as of September 1, 2023.
