O.C. Night Owl bus service to cuts routes

March 14, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
Beginning Sunday night, the Night Owl bus service in Orange County will be a thing of the past.

The Night Owl service on routes 43, 50, 57 and 60 is getting cut which means buses will not run from 1 a.m. to 4 a.m.

The latest figures show that those four routes average fewer than 500 daily boardings during predawn hours.

The Orange County Transportation Authority is trying to reduce service by 150,000 hours in an effort to save money.

Seven routes will be eliminated on weekdays, six on Saturdays and eight on Sundays.
