OCTA unveils redesigned Website

Posted on September 22, 2009

The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) has redesigned the layout of their Website and added features.

 

Since the bus section receives more than 80 percent of all hits to the site, OCTA refreshed the layout and added new tools that make planning trips and buying passes quick and easy. A new interactive map allows users to plan trips around specific cities, park-and-rides or Metrolink stations with a quick link to download specific routes and create a personalized eBusbook.

 

For Metrolink users, the train section includes a “Things to Do” calendar that lists special events taking place each month near different stations and a new Interactive Fun Guide that makes it convenient to find great dining, entertainment and shopping.

 

Finding new ways to save time and money for commuters is enhanced by the “Share the Ride” section. Users select their commute distance to find out what options works best for them. This tool also provides helpful information about each solution, such as how many calories are burned by walking or the benefits of riding a bike.

 

Users also can calculate their savings with the new Carbon Cost Calculator and sign up to receive personalized updates, including an option to receive information via text messages.

 

To visit the new Website, go to: www.octa.net.
