$991,000 coming to the Sacramento region in transit funding
The CTC Commits $72 Million in New Funding to Improve Transit Throughout California
Thanks to the recent decision from the California Transportation Commission (CTC), the Sacramento region will be receiving $991,000 for transit improvements. The money will be used to fund Sacramento Regional Transit District’s Circulator Bus Service Expansion, which includes the expansion of service throughout the district with the purchase of electric and/or gasoline buses for safe, reliable, and affordable transportation.
This new funding is a result of the Road Repair and Accountability Act (SB 1), which will provide funding for dozens of transportation improvement projects across the state, including local projects.
The $991,000 the Sacramento region is receiving is part of $72 million awarded throughout the state. The 2019 Local Partnership Formulaic Program is the second cycle of SB 1 funding, with the CTC approving 33 projects. The Local Partnership Program provides eligible self-help cities and counties with new revenue generated by SB 1 each year to fund a wide range of transportation improvement projects.
Projects approved in this second round of funding will help important transportation improvements in the Sacramento region and throughout the state.
