Public Input Considered in Bus Service Plan Approval

Public Input Considered in Bus Service Plan Approval

The February 2018 Bus Service Plan includes revisions based on 376 comments received from the public after the initial plan was released.

OCTA adjusts bus service three time a year to ensure bus routes serve the county most efficiently. The February changes are part of the OC Bus 360° initiative to reallocate existing resources to areas where ridership demand is highest.

The planned changes for February were discussed at three public outreach meetings and a public hearing at a previous OCTA board meeting.

Major changes include:

  • Improving weekday peak frequencies to 30 minutes on routes 56, 89, 90, and 91.
  • Extending Route 59 to The District at Tustin Legacy and improving frequency on weekends.
  • Improving weekend frequencies on routes 29, 43, 50, 53, 54, 60, and 91.
  • Eliminating Sunday service on route 177.
  • Eliminating bus trips with less than eight boardings in the morning or late evening on routes 30, 46, 50, 86, 90 and 153.
  • Eliminating Express routes 212 and 216.
  • Reducing or eliminating service on some lower-ridership segments of routes 463 and 794.

OCTA is implementing a comprehensive outreach program to notify riders of the changes before they go into effect on February 11, 2018.  Learn more about the February 2018 Bus Service Plan here.
