Ride OC Bus for Free

Whoever said "there's no free ride" never visited this website. Your next ride on OC Bus could be on the house.

Rideshare Week

During Rideshare Week from October 3 to 7, California celebrates transportation such as carpooling, bicycling, walking, and riding the bus and train.

It’s a great time to change up your commute, save money on gas, and help the environment.

Through October 31, try sharing the ride with a little help from OCTA. Ride OC all day, everywhere with a free OC Bus Day Pass or start a vanpool and get gas cards worth $200.
