The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) found “no findings” for improvements for the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) during its triennial review of transit operators, OCTA officials announced yesterday. 

Every three years, the FTA completes a thorough review of transit operations for compliance with federal requirements and best practices.

The FTA’s conclusion of no findings means that OCTA is meeting federal standards. Fewer than 10 percent of all agencies reviewed receive a report with no findings, OCTA officials said in a press release.

OCTA is part of the Southern California Regional Rail Authority, a joint powers body that operates the Metrolink commuter-rail service in Southern California.
