Public Input Requested on Alternatives to Driving Alone

By 2045, Orange County expects to see population growth of nearly 10% and employment growth of 12%, which could lead to more vehicles on the road and more traffic congestion.

With the public’s help, OCTA is developing a plan that will recommend effective strategies for expanding access to alternative travel options and help people shift away from driving alone.

Those options could include carpooling, vanpooling, telecommuting and other technology-enabled innovations such as carsharing, bike sharing and mobile trip planning apps that improve transportation for all in Orange County.

The Transportation Demand Management Plan aims to provide transportation strategies to improve equity, sustainability, public health and quality of life. Benefits would include improved air quality, healthier travel alternatives and enhanced access to affordable travel options.

To ensure the plan aligns with the needs of residents, OCTA invites the public to participate by:
