Senate Bill 1, the landmark transportation infrastructure bill signed by Governor Brown in April, will provide $7.6 billion in new transit funding over the next decade. Today, the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) announced a series of workshops intended to shape the how SB 1 dollars are invested in public transit.
Monday, June 26
1 pm – 2 pm
Union Station Conference Room

Los Angeles, CA 90012
Tuesday, June 27

Senate Bill 1 funds will support the TIRCP, the State Transit Assistance, and the Commuter Rail and Intercity Rail programs, and each program will be discussed at the workshops. The TIRCP will continue to also benefit from funding from the cap-and-trade auctions that fund California Climate Investments to help the state reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change. Through all of these programs, the state will partner with transit and rail operators to improve and modernize transit service.
The workshops are also an opportunity to provide input for the 2017-18 cycle of the Low Carbon Transit Operations Program, which is fully funded through California Climate Investments.
