About Irvine Spectrum Buses

The Irvine Spectrum Area is served by a variety of bus routes that you can use to commute to work. Metrolink and Amtrak train riders arriving at the Irvine Train Station also have a variety of routes to deliver them to their work sites. Riding the bus is one of the least costly methods of ridesharing. You will save on gas, auto maintenance and possibly the expense of owning a car altogether. Spectrumotion wants to make commuting by bus as easy as possible. Bus riders are eligible for our Emergency Ride Home Program. We’ll also give you a Free 30-Day OCTA Bus Pass (must be a new rider) so you can give the bus a try.
