Orange County Buses Switch to Sunday Schedules Due to #COVID19 on Monday March 23 2020
All Orange County Bus Routes will temporarily shift to the Sunday service schedule seven days a week, beginning Monday March 23 2020.
A reduction in service is necessary to help protect the health of OCTA employees while providing reliability to riders who are still depending upon the OC Bus service.
OCTA Chairman Steve Jones, also the Mayor of Garden Grove commented, “We know that for some people transit service will continue to be critical to shop for food and get to essential jobs for our communities and medical facilities to function.”
There has been an approximately 60 percent drop in ridership over the past two weeks, with fewer than 50,000 boardings on Thursday March 19 2020 compared to a typical average weekday of 125,000.
