By Tony Barboza, Times Staff Writer

The Orange County Transportation Authority and its 1,100-member bus drivers' union approved a new contract this morning that will end the bus strike that began July 7.

OCTA will ask the drivers to return to their scheduled routes at noon today. Full service is expected to be restored by midweek.

The OCTA board unanimously approved the new contract, which calls for an $18.2-million increase from the previous pact. It will give raises of 10.8% to entry-level drivers and 11.7% to drivers with five or more years of experience.
