Expected to begin operations in 2022, the OC Streetcar will link the bustling Santa Ana Regional Transportation Center (SARTC), which provides regional rail, OCTA bus, and intercity and international bus services, to a new multimodal hub at Harbor Boulevard/Westminster Avenue in Garden Grove. Along the way, OC Streetcar will connect directly with 18 OCTA bus routes. OC Streetcar will serve the historic downtown Santa Ana and Civic Center which includes government offices, federal, state and local courthouses, unique restaurants and shops, an artists’ village, several schools and a variety of community enrichment organizations.
As part of the project, the K&A creative team designed a mobile app to be used as a central communication hub for the project. The mobile app keeps stakeholders up-to-date on construction progress, daily traffic impacts, road closures, utility work and more. Since parking reductions are expected to be significant, the app includes information on available parking locations as well as maps that outline construction zones. K&A worked through every stage of the app development, from concept to design and through to implementation and launch of the final application.
