Transportation Authority and C/CAG Announce Shuttle Call for Projects, Hold Workshop

Transportation Authority and C/CAG Announce Shuttle Call for Projects, Hold Workshop

 

The San Mateo County Transportation Authority (TA) and the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG) anticipate the announcing of an upcoming Call for Projects (CFP) for the San Mateo County Shuttle Program, with up to $10 million available in funds over the next two fiscal years.

The goal of the program is to provide local shuttle services for access to regional transit services and meet local mobility needs. Shuttles fill a critical first/last mile gap in the transportation infrastructure of the Peninsula.

The shuttle CFP was presented to the TA Board of Directors at their December meeting last Thursday, and C/CAG is expected to confirm their support this Thursday, December 14. Pending that approval, the TA & C/CAG will formally release a CFP and hold an application workshop for applicants interested in the shuttle program. That meeting’s details are as follows:

Monday, December 18, 1:30 p.m.
San Mateo County Transportation Authority Headquarters
Fourth Floor Dining Room
1250 San Carlos Avenue, San Carlos

During the workshop, an overview of the shuttle program, the call for projects guidelines, and the application process will be provided. There will be a question-and-answer session afterward, during which potential applicants can inquire about project eligibility and other specific questions. While private entities are not eligible to apply directly, they may partner with a local jurisdiction or another public agency.

Applications are due by Feb. 9, 2018. Questions can be directed to the TA, through Joel Slavit at 650-508-6476 or slavitj@samtrans.com, or to the C/CAG, through Susy Kalkin at 650-599-1467 or kkalkin@smcgov.org.

Application materials are in the process of being finalized and will be posted on the TA website when the CFP is released, which is anticipated to occur on or after Monday, December 18, 2017.
