SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Without discussion on its consent calendar Tuesday night, the San Clemente City Council approved its latest application for the Orange County Transportation’s (OCTA) summer trolley program, which includes daily service and a plan to connect to Dana Point. As San Clemente has altered its plans from last year, it will have to submit another application.
Since the summer trolley program began in 2016, San Clemente has had the top ridership of all the trolley programs OCTA offers. It started as a Thursday-through-Sunday service on a route through the coastal business zone and now looks to expand.
The summer trolley program application will likely be approved by OCTA this spring, and the summer trolley program will run from Memorial Day to the end of September.
The San Clemente Times will provide a more detailed article in the Jan. 24-30 edition.
