Keeping Orange County Moving Today and Tomorrow

 

 

COC Transitions to TOC

 

When an increase in volume slowed traffic throughout the County in the late 1980s, Orange County voters took matters into their own hands. In 1990, they approved Measure M, a 20-year program for local transportation improvements funded by a half-cent sales tax. Measure M was a contract with the voters, promising to deliver a number of transportation improvements. Specific safeguards were put in place to review and certify that funds are spent according to the voter-approved plan. Voters entrusted the newly created Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) to administer Measure M funds.
