Local Shuttle Call for Projects

PROGRAM FOCUS
The goal of the Local Shuttle Program is to fund operating projects that meet local mobility needs and/or provide access to regional transit services in San Mateo County. Projects in the Local Shuttle Program should contribute to the overall goals of the Measure A Program to reduce commute corridor congestion, make regional connections, enhance safety and meet local mobility needs. Eligible projects include the operation of shuttle buses that are typically larger than a van, but smaller than a full-sized bus. The 2004 Measure A Expenditure Plan indicates that the project ranking priority will be given to shuttles that connect to Caltrain, BART and ferry terminals, as well as shuttles with contributions from private sources.

The FY2011 and FY2012 Local Shuttle Program Call for Projects is closed. The next call for projects cycle will be for FY2013 and FY2014.
