The San Mateo County Transportation Authority (TA), along with the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG), have announced the release of the call for projects 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.
There will be an application workshop for applicants interested in the shuttle program. That meeting’s details are as follows:
Tuesday, December 15, 1:30 p.m.
San Mateo County Transportation Authority Headquarters
Second Floor Auditorium
1250 San Carlos Avenue, San Carlos
During the workshop, TA and C/CAG staff will provide an overview of the shuttle program, the call for projects guidelines, and the application process. 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 4 p.m. on Feb. 12, 2016. Questions can be directed to the TA, through Joel Slavit at 650-508-6476 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or to the C/CAG, through Tom Madalena at 650-599-1460 or email@example.com.
Application materials are posted on the TA website as well as the C/CAG website: http://ccag.ca.gov/opportunities/call-for-projects/.
