When will the next bus arrive?  How can I make my way across town? For those contemplating a ride on transit provided by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), answers to questions like these and others are readily available through a new feature on the OCTA website.

The OCTA App Center, an interactive webpage showcasing mobile and web apps packed with OCTA information, makes it easier for new and existing customers to determine schedules and plan trips. Currently displaying 15 free and paid apps for both Android and Apple iPhone, the resource is an easy and convenient way to make OCTA transit a part of everyday life.

A short description of each app is included on the webpage, but the best way for riders to choose their ideal bit of transit help is to read reviews. Links are provided from the OCTA webpage.       

The apps are created by independent software developers using free data provided by OCTA.
