Transit

Something New!
Introducing a "Trolley/Bus Tracker" on the Official Laguna Beach Travel Info mobile application.  Download this free app from iTunes, Google Play or Amazon stores.

The City of Laguna Beach operates its own transit system to meet the transportation needs of residents and visitors alike, and to reduce automobile travel and its impacts within the community.

Laguna Beach Transit provides intracommunity transportation services and augments the intercommunity services and paratransit services provided by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA). Laguna Beach Transit provides four types or modes of service within the City of Laguna Beach.

The Transit Program Service Analysis will look at ways to improve transit services to improve service levels, contain costs and consider options for revenue enhancement.  Click here for more information.
