  • Project V

  • The Measure M2 (M2) Project V - Community-Based Transit/Circulators Program establishes a competitive process to enable local jurisdictions to develop community based local transit services that complement regional transit services, and meet needs in areas not adequately serviced by regional transit.

    On February 12, 2018, at the Orange County Transportation Authority’s (OCTA) Board of Directors meeting, the OCTA Board authorized staff to issue a 2018 Project V Call for Projects that focuses on special event and seasonal services, and also allows agency-led year-round services. The Board of Directors (Board) approved the upcoming Call in the amount of $12 million for local projects. Projects must meet specific criteria in order to compete for funding through this program. Complete guidelines related to the 2018 Project V Call for Projects can be found in Chapter 6 of the Comprehensive Transportation Funding Program (CTFP) Guidelines.
