    5 KEY OC BUS RIDING GUIDELINES

    1. Check to see if your bus is boarding from the front or the rear doors.
    2. Bus fare is required when riding. Please have your fare ready.
    3. A face covering is required when riding.
    4. Observe social distancing at stops and when riding.
    5. Please don’t ride if you’re sick.

    FRONT DOOR BOARDING IS RETURNING
    OCTA is adding new safety measures on OC Bus including plexiglass barriers between the coach operators and passengers to allow boarding from the front of the bus. This is a phased rollout and will continue until all buses in our fleet have been modified. During the phased rollout period, as your bus is pulling up, please check to see if the bus is boarding from the front or the rear doors and have your bus fare ready before you board.

    RIDE SMART. STAY SAFE.
    OCTA safeguards the health of OC Bus riders with enhanced cleaning of buses in operation, applying anti-viral disinfectant to every bus daily and taking extra time to clean surfaces touched most frequently. Additional safety measures have been taken to protect the safety of our customers and employees. Please follow the important safety guidelines below when riding OC Bus to protect yourself and others.
     
    Face covering required when waiting for and riding OC Bus. Please don’t travel if you are sick.
     
    Leave a row or a seat between yourself and other passengers when possible for proper social distancing.
     
    Use hand sanitizer available on all our fixed-route buses.
     
    Board from the rear door to protect safety of passengers and coach operators. Boarding from the front door will still be allowed for passengers with disabilities or those who require use of the ramp.
     
    A bus pass is still required. Bus fare is not free while boarding from the rear. You’ll be required to show your bus pass upon request to the coach operator or transit police.
     
    We are boarding fewer passengers per bus to provide more room for social distancing. Signs in the bus window indicate if the bus is full. Please wait for the next bus if your scheduled bus is full.
    Plan ahead before you ride. All adjusted routes and schedules can be found on OCTA.net or by calling 714-636-RIDE.
