With age comes wisdom…and lower bus fares!
Once again you are being called on to put all those years of wisdom to good use. This time it is for yourself…and your budget. Why not use the bus instead of spending money on gas? Thanks to Measure M, our senior fares make the switch rather affordable. We offer a variety of passes and options that are discounted from the regular adult fare. Below is list of our senior fares and passes. Which one works best for you?

Never ridden the bus before?
Taking the bus is easy. But like anything new, some inside tips can be useful. Go to our How to Ride and Riding Tips sections to find everything you need to know about planning a bus trip, paying the fare, and requesting a stop. We even have step-by-step instructions.

OCTA connects you to where you want to go.

Teaching Seniors how to ride
Seniors LakeviewWe offer a free program for seniors covering the basics of "How to Ride the Bus." This service is available to groups/organizations serving seniors throughout Orange County.

Simply contact us to schedule a professional presentation by OCTA's outreach team at your location to teach seniors how to ride the bus. The presentation is engaging and informative, and all participants receive one free one-day bus passes so they can try the bus with a family member or friend.

To learn more or schedule your appointment, email us at seniors@octa.net or call Jessica Lopez at 714 560-5310.

Senior Mobility Program
If you're just traveling in your city, our Senior Mobility Program might be the answer. Under the program, participating cities and organizations receive funds and vehicles from OCTA to operate a transit program for older adults. Currently, there are 22 cities and four non-profit organizations in the Senior Mobility Program, with more developing programs in the near future.  

ACCESS service
If you're not able to use regular bus service due to a disability, ACCESS service may be the answer. ACCESS is our shared-ride service for people who are unable to use the regular fixed-route bus service. You must be certified by OCTA and meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) eligibility criteria to use the ACCESS system.
