OC Streetcar

Project Overview

In 2008, the cities of Santa Ana and Garden Grove began a partnership with the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) to develop a last-mile connection from the Santa Ana Regional Transportation Center to Garden Grove, providing greater mobility and transportation choices to the residents of both cities. Through extensive outreach and community engagement, a streetcar alternative was selected by City Council on August 5, 2014. On March 10, 2015, Santa Ana received notice that Federal Transit Authority (FTA) had issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), completing the environmental process and Santa Ana's lead agency role for the project.

Santa Ana will continue to be engaged with its partners at OCTA and Garden Grove as OCTA takes the lead agency role for outreach, design, implementation, operations and maintenance of the project. Please visit OCTA’s OC Streetcar Website for the latest details.
