State Grant Will Help Transit Planning in Sacramento Area

The Sacramento (CA) Regional Transit District (RT), in partnership with the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), has received a $492,000 grant from California DOT (Caltrans) that will help the agencies integrate transportation and land use planning to optimize public transit and TOD throughout the county.

The two agencies provided a combined local match of $202,000, bringing the total project cost to $694,000.

RT Board Chair Andy Morin said the grant funding demonstrates that the agency is “continuing with its transformation to become a world-class transit system.”

The grant includes funding to develop an interagency framework to guide future TOD, coordinating efforts among RT, SACOG, Sacramento County and local cities, as well as acquisition of proprietary planning software that helps public transit agencies design routes while identifying cost and demographic impacts associated with proposed changes.
