The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) operates 77 bus lines throughout Orange County, along with parts of Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties. As the authority continues to grow, it is outpacing capacity at its current Garden Grove Bus Base, which serves as OCTA’s core security and operations facility. To help meet OCTA’s capacity needs, STV is preparing conceptual and preliminary engineering plans, specifications, cost estimates, and environmental documentation for a proposed new 30,000-square-foot Transit Security and Operations Center (TSOC) in Anaheim.
The center will be OCTA’s main complex for operations management, transit police, personnel training, communications, and emergency response management. STV’s 30 percent design plans aim to seamlessly integrate the new building into an existing narrow and irregular site shape. Because the construction site is adjacent to Union Pacific Railroad’s right-of-way, STV is also coordinating with the railroad to minimize any impact to daily rail operations. In adherence with the California Environmental Quality Act, the firm will prepare and review environmental documentation, including a required California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Categorial Exclusion filing.
