Title

August 2021 Bus Service Change

 

Overview

California is emerging from the coronavirus pandemic and the stay-at-home orders that were put in place to protect public health are being phased out. The return of economic activity is expected to increase demand for bus transit service. In response, the Orange County Transportation Authority is implementing a mid-summer service change. The proposed August 2021 bus service change represents the largest increase in service since the start of the pandemic. The additional service is intended to address expected ridership increases related to the return of in-person instruction for schools, colleges, and universities, and the resurgence of hospitality industry activities.
