  • You have a smart phone, these apps make it smarter

    They call that smart phone you’re using to Snapchat a smart phone for a reason. It can fill your head with all the travel information you could possibly want using a number of cool apps. Below are our top three favorites but there are many others just in case you want to max out your phones storage on transportation stuff.


    Eliminating the “parent factor” this fall

    We want to give you permission to stop being a taxi service for your kid. A Youth Pass is a small price to pay for your freedom and theirs. We don’t know how many trips you make back and forth to the mall or beach but we guarantee an OC Bus can take them there. The Youth Pass is for kids ages 6-18 and can be purchased online or your favorite market. Or if you want to chat with us, you can purchase your pass at the OCTA Store.

    A quick note about peace of mind

    When your kid rides an OC Bus, they are on one of the safest vehicles on the streets. Our buses are clean, the drivers trained to make things safe (including pointing out the five cameras on every bus!) and many of our routes operate 15 minutes or less so your kid won’t spend too much time hanging around waiting.
