The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is a multi-modal transportation agency serving Orange County. We keep Orange County moving with countywide bus and paratransit service, Metrolink rail service, the 91 Express Lanes toll facility, freeway, street and road improvement projects, motorist aid services and by regulating taxi operations.
OCTA began in 1991 with the consolidation of seven separate transportation agencies. By increasing efficiency and eliminating duplicate functions, we save county taxpayers millions of dollars.
An 18-member Board of Directors governs OCTA. The Board consists of 5 county supervisors, 10 city members, 2 public members and the Director of the Department of Transportation District 12 (Caltrans) as a non-voting member.
