Other Transportation Programs and Services 7%
Point-To-Point Services For Seniors, Veterans And Persons With Disabilities $3,355,781
This is for specialized need-based door-through-door transportation services for seniors, veterans and persons with disabilities. These funds will be allocated to the existing MOVE Program, essentially tripling capacity for need-based services for the County’s seniors, veterans and people with disabilities.
Community Connections $3,355,781
Funds will be used for projects providing safer bicycle and pedestrian pathways in cities and the unincorporated areas, increasing bus/van service and upgrading bus stops. Many community members live in areas with limited public transit and/or bike connections to shopping, schools and work. Funds from this category will be used to boost services in these areas making it easier for people to access transit services and bike and pedestrian facilities.
Funds will be used for operations, maintenance and infrastructure improvements for public transit. They may also be used to supplement local, state and federal funds for cost of transit service. These funds will be allocated to public transit providers to support or enhance public transit service throughout the region. This may include increasing frequency of service, identifying new routes and/or investment in ride sharing services.
Rail Services $2,237,187
Funds will be used for operations, maintenance and infrastructure improvements for public transit connections to existing rail services. They may be used to supplement local, state, and federal funds for the cost of public transit connections to regional rail services including ACE, BART and Amtrak, and marketing to increase awareness and ridership across all rail services.
StanCOG and the ACE management team believe there is a need to continue to promote ACE in anticipation of future funding which may be allocated for the proposed extension. These may be used to increase ridership and/or fund new AMTRAK service and increase bus/van connections to existing ACE services to the Bay Area. No Funds will be used for high-speed rail.
