Regulatory and Public Meeting Notice - August 2014


We are seeking public input on how to invest cap-and-trade proceeds for two new transit and rail programs that will support California’s landmark efforts to fight climate change by curbing greenhouse gases.

These two programs are called the Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program (TIRCP) and the Low Carbon Transit Operations Program (LCTOP).

Here are the presentations and fact sheets for both of these programs:
