    Project Overview

    The Orange County Transportation Authority's (OCTA) operational and security functions are currently centralized at its "Garden Grove Annex" (Annex) building. This existing facility is currently inadequate to provide space for transit security and operations. Space is unavailable for expected growth or addition of new functions that are required by OCTA's projected operations. In addition, structural upgrades to the Annex building requires meeting essential services facility standards in California, which may not be feasible due to existing structural limitations of the Annex and disruption of operations while upgrades are undertaken.

    The planned Transit Security and Operations Center (TSOC) will be designed to current essential services standards per the latest edition of the California Building Code. TSOC will generally house some of Annex functions, provide adequate spaces for these functions, improve efficiency of room layouts, and provide space for future functions and/or expansion.

    Funding

    This approximately $38 million project is funded by State (Proposition 1B grant) and Federal (Federal Transit Administration grant) sources.

    Project Benefits

    The TSOC will be a "purpose" designed facility for OCTA. It will specifically address the needs and requirements of OCTA's operations with the goal of supporting job duties, efficiency, functionality, communication, and operations. Within this new facility, the following OCTA functions will be housed:

    • Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
    • Central Communications (Dispatch)
    • Field Operations (Transit)
    • Information Systems / Information Technologies
    • Security and Emergency Preparedness
    • Transit Police

    Project Status

    The project is in the environmental clearance and preliminary engineering (30% design) phase, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Final design will follow in 2019 and be completed by the end of 2020.

    After design work is 100% completed, a construction procurement will be initiated, followed by a two-year construction period.

    The new Transit Security and Operations Center is expected to be commissioned into service beginning in 2024.
