OCTA Seeks Public Input on Innovative Transportation Plan

OCTA encourages and seeks feedback from the public to provide alternatives to single-passenger transportation

ORANGE – The Orange County Transportation Authority is seeking public input to develop an innovative transportation plan that will recommend effective strategies for expanding access to alternative travel options and help people shift away from driving alone.

Those options could include carpooling, vanpooling, telecommuting and other technology-enabled innovations such as carsharing, bike sharing and mobile trip planning apps that improve transportation for all in Orange County.

By 2045, Orange County expects to see population growth of nearly 10% and employment growth of 12%, which could lead to more vehicles on the road and more traffic congestion unless convenient travel alternatives are provided.

The Transportation Demand Management Plan aims to provide transportation strategies to improve equity, sustainability, public health and quality of life. Benefits would include improved air quality, healthier travel alternatives and enhanced access to affordable travel options.

To ensure the plan aligns with the needs of residents, OCTA invites the public to participate by:

Filling out a brief, 3- to 5-minute online questionnaire by Sept. 18 at

Participating in a Virtual Community Meeting via Zoom
From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Aug. 31

Meeting ID: 825 5834 8477
Call-in: (213) 338 8477

As Orange County’s transportation planning agency, OCTA will share the results with local cities and partner agencies for a countywide strategy for advancing, funding and implementing the plan at a local and regional level.
