We appreciate your feedback!

Thank you for participating in the Making Better Connections Study.

We received more than 8,500 responses from outreach efforts, listened to your bus-riding preferences, met many of you in person at our 19 bus ride-alongs and 26 pop-up events at transportation centers, markets and cultural events, and discussed the project with you at three virtual and community meetings and a public hearing.

The plan has been approved by the OCTA Board of Directors and will be implemented over eight service changes, beginning with the February 2023 service change and continuing through 2024, dependent on available resources.

Final Route Changes

These route changes maximize efficacy, increase bus service on high ridership routes, reduce the wait time to catch bus and simply route structures.
