Help Restore STP/CMAQ Funding for Bicycles
When MTC adopted the 2009 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) this spring, we applauded them for taking climate change seriously and recognizing the importance . Not only did they set ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets, but for the first time ever, included $400 million in funding for a five-year Transportation Climate Action Campaign with $100 million worth of funding for the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) and Safe Routes to Transit (SRTT) programs.
Now, MTC is backpedaling on their commitment to climate. Instead of funding the Transportation Climate Action Campaign in the first five years of the life of the RTP, they’re proposing to shift funding to freeway priorities and fund the Climate Campaign at just 17% of the level promised, threatening millions of dollars of bicycle funding through the SRTS and SRTT programs!
Join BABC and our partner TransForm in telling the MTC Commissioners to make good on their word and fully fund the Transportation Climate Action Campaign.
Take action here.
