New Transportation Budget Up for Debate

Orange County transportation officials are set to debate a proposed $1.1 billion budget for the upcoming year, which currently projects a 10-percent reduction in expenses.

Most of that $137-million drop in Orange County Transportation Authority costs would come from unspecified “contributions to other agencies.”

Staff, meanwhile, highlight that the budget will maintain bus and rail service levels.

About $2.4 million, or 0.2 percent of the overall budget, is dedicated to “active transportation,” which centers on bike infrastructure and education efforts.

The workshop is scheduled toward the end of Monday’s meeting, which starts at 9 a.m.
