Traffic & Transportation

SENIOR TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM

Effective June 1, 2020, the City of Seal Beach Senior Transportation Services will be provided by California Yellow Cab.  This service change was a result of the unexpected closure of the Keolis’ Orange County facility, which was contracted to operate the City’s senior shuttle and dial-a-ride program. The Keolis Orange County facility is scheduled to close on May 31, 2020. 

As a result, the Thursday Shopper Shuttle Service and Senior Nutrition Shuttle/Rossmoor/North Seal Beach Community Center will be suspended until further notice; however, the Dial-a-Ride services will be expanded as follows with California Yellow Cab:

  • Operating hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30a.m. to 2:30p.m.
  • Reservations must be made 24-hours in advance by calling toll free (877) 224-8294. Reservations made less than 24-hours in advance cannot be guaranteed.
  • Only registered eligible riders can partake in this service. To be eligible, the rider must be a Seal Beach resident 60 years and older.
  • To confirm whether you are already registered, please call California Yellow Cab - Melissa  Gomez or Cristina Valle at (714) 427-2555
  • To register as a new rider, please contact Iris Lee at (562) 431-2527 x1322, or ilee@sealbeachca.gov.
  • There is no cost to use this service.
  • Transportation services will be provided to any location within City limits, and up to three (3) miles outside City limits and within Orange County for non-emergency medical purposes.  Users may also elect to go to the VA Hospital in Long Beach.

TRAFFIC IMPACT STUDY GUIDELINES

Guidelines as to when a traffic impact study would be completed were developed to be applied to redevelopment and development projects to better understand the nature of the scope of work, identify traffic impacts, and analyze levels of service. The factors will determine mitigation issues and potential impacts. The Traffic Impact Study Guidelines are available using the link below:

ORANGE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY

The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is a multi-modal transportation agency serving Orange County. Orange County is kept moving with countywide bus and paratransit service; Metrolink rail service; the 91 Express Lanes toll facility; freeway, street, and road improvement projects; Share the Ride commuting options for individuals and employers; motorist aid services; and by regulating taxi operations. Here are the bus schedules for Route 1, Route 42, and Route 60.

OCTA began in 1991 with the consolidation of seven separate transportation agencies. By increasing efficiency and eliminating duplicate functions, county taxpayers save millions of dollars.

An 18-member Board of Directors governs OCTA. The Board consists of five county supervisors, 10 city members, two public members, and the Director of the Department of Transportation District 12 (Caltrans) as a non-voting member.

Long Beach Transit

Long Beach Transit (LBT) Routes 131 and 171, which ceased operations into Seal Beach in August 2012, will again be extended into the City starting June 1, 2014.

Details of the lines' new routes into Seal Beach are being finalized now and will go into effect as part of LBT's June service changes.

Finalized maps, times, and schedules will be available on the Seal Beach website and on Long Beach Transit buses and www.lbtransit.com in May.

MEASURE M2

Managed by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), the Measure M2 Transportation Investment Plan is a 30-year, $11.8 billion program designed to reduce traffic congestion, strengthen our economy, and improve our quality of life by upgrading key freeways, fixing major freeway interchanges, maintaining streets and roads, synchronizing traffic signals countywide, building a visionary rail-transit system, and protecting our environment from the oily street runoff that pollutes Orange County beaches. The plan is focused solely on improving the transportation system and includes tough taxpayer safeguards, including a Taxpayer Oversight Committee, required annual audits, and regular, public reports on project progress. The Measure M2 Transportation Investment Plan must be reviewed annually, in a public meeting, and every 10 years a detailed review of the plan must take place. If circumstances require the voter-approved plan to be altered, those changes must be taken to the voters for approval.
