Orange County, CA Bus Transit

Orange Counties bus system has come a long way and needs to continue to improve as quickly as possible. New features and systems such as the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) will make commuting on the bus more efficient and desirable. For now, Orange County bus riders can enjoy selecting from all sorts of bus passes, express bus routes, purchase tickets and map out their route online and enjoy the life of a stress free passenger all while polluting less and cutting back on foreign oil dependency.

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a new approach to traditional bus travel. The new buses will only stop at key destinations in order to provide faster service in existing transit corridors. BRT is planned to offer frequent service, have its own distinct identity, offer traffic signal priority and serve customized bus shelters that display real-time bus arrival information.

Stress-free commuting on the OC Express
Just because you’ve got a long commute doesn’t mean you have to drive. Take the OC Express instead and cruise to work in the fast lane. By utilizing the carpool lanes or 91 Express Lanes, the OC Express limited-stop service will get you to and from work faster. Plus, every seat on the OC Express has a lap tray, power connection, reading light and comfortable high-back seating. You can use your time to catch up on reading, work on your laptop, or just lean back and enjoy the ride. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll arrive at work much more refreshed.
