Four units, located in Downtown
, Civic Center
and the Santa Ana Regional Transportation Center
, are part
of the initial phase.
The project is funded by a Federal Transit Authority “Transportation Enhancements” grant, which requires that the units be located to support “first mile/last mile” options for individuals
transferring from transit or Metrolink to places of employment or business districts.
