Safe Transit Stops
On October 22, 2018, the Orange County Transportation Authority’s (OCTA) Board of Directors (Board) authorized staff to issue the 2019 call for projects (call) for the Safe Transit Stops (Project W) program. This is a fixed-scope program, which provides funding for passenger amenities at the 100 busiest bus stops in Orange County determined by average daily weekday passenger boardings. The goal of the program is to provide value, safety, and convenience which enhances the overall transit experience.
In fiscal year 2020, per the Board’s direction, a supplemental call was issued and closed on June 30, 2020. As of to date, a total of approximately $3.1 million has been recommended for 122 transit stops.
The Board approved revised CTFP Guidelines are available online and can be found here (see Chapter 3).
