During July and August, OCTA staff is presenting plans for the OC (bike) Loop at meetings throughout Orange County. The OC Loop is the future 66-mile bikeway which will one day connect many parts of the county in a continuous loop.
Seventy percent of the OC Loop is already in place and used by thousands to bike, walk, and connect to Orange County’s beaches and inland areas. It also provides first and last mile connections to numerous bus stops and three Metrolink stations. With minimal stops and crossings, the OC Loop is also a viable commuting route to the major employers in the area.
