Supervisor Doug Chaffee, Fourth District

March 9, 2020

The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is conducting a Transportation Needs Assessment (TNA) to gain insight into the mobility needs of persons living and/or working in Orange County. The purpose of the TNA is to develop service and program recommendations that OCTA can utilize to guide future planning decisions and engagement activities.

This survey is available for all Orange County residents (current transit riders as well as non-riders). All respondents will be given the opportunity to enter into a random drawing to win one of several $100 VISA gift cards!

Please take the 10-minute community survey today at to provide input/feedback about transit in Orange County and your mobility needs. The survey will be online through the end of March.

In addition, OCTA is recruiting new committee members for the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC). OCTA strongly encourages residents and community leaders to get involved and help improve the quality of life for all Orange County residents.

The Citizens Advisory Committee is a 34-member group that provides input on a range of transportation projects, studies and outreach activities. Appointed by OCTA’s Board of Directors, the committee’s responsibilities include identifying opportunities for community input, serving as a liaison between the public and OCTA, and participating in roundtable discussions.

OCTA is seeking individuals with a demonstrated interest in community activities and transportation issues who are willing to dedicate at least 15 hours per year to meetings and activities.

This is an unpaid volunteer position and committee members are asked to commit to a two-year term. Candidates must be at least 18 years old and live in Orange County.

Applications are available at and must be received by May 1. For more information, contact Jared Hill at (714) 560-5680 or
The Board is expected to select members by the end of June.
