OCTA Dilemma: Cost vs. Accountability

Share this:


O.C. County Supervisor John Moorlach should resign from the Orange County Transit Authority board of directors. He does not represent the millions of citizens who ride the big OCTA buses, Access buses and Metrolink trains operated by OCTA.

The driver who texted numerous times before his Metrolink train crashed and killed 20 plus people in Los Angeles worked for a driver’s service. He was paid much less and had fewer benefits than the union drivers who drive the big OCTA buses.

In April, the contract with these union drivers end. Will Moorlach want to end this contract and replace them with drivers who barely make a working wage and have few benefits? Who would you like to drive the bus, Access bus or Metrolink train you are riding on?
