The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) has been awarded $9.3 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for projects to improve transit throughout Orange County.
The competitive transit grant awards were part of the DOT’s Bus Livability and State of Good Repair programs.
OCTA received five grants:
