    Project Overview


    The Future’s on Track!
    March 10, 2015: With the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) issuance of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), the OC Streetcar is now environmentally cleared and ready to advance for additional design and engineering.

    May 5, 2015: OCTA receives approval to enter Federal New Starts Program.

    February 9, 2016: OC Streetcar got a major boost when President Barack Obama included $125 million for the OC Streetcar in his budget for next fiscal year, signaling federal endorsement for the much-anticipated project.

    Project Development 2015 – 2016
    The project development phase includes the development, public circulation and approval of all environmental documents, the adoption of the preferred route by the cities, and the beginning of project design.

    Design and Engineering 2016 – 2017
    In the design and engineering phase, all the details of how the streetcar will be constructed and operated will be developed.

    Construction 2018 – 2022
    In the construction phase, tracks will be laid and the streetcar will become a reality.

    Testing; Begin Operations 2022
    Since safety is a top priority, the streetcar system will be thoroughly tested before it is ready for public use.


    The preliminary cost estimate for the OC Streetcar is $408 million (year of expenditure). This OC Go project, is being constructed in cooperation with Caltrans and will be funded mostly through a combination of local, state and federal funds.
