About The Program

The Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program was established by the California Legislature in 2014 by Senate Bill 862. It is one of many programs charged with using cap and trade auction proceeds to help the state reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change.

At the end of June 2015, CalSTA completed the first round of the program, awarding $224 million to 14 projects throughout California. The grants fund projects that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by expanding public transportation ridership and capacity.
