Funds from the Low Carbon Transit Operations Program support operating or capital expenses that expand or enhance transit service, increase transit modal share, or are related to the purchase of zero-emission buses. Projects must also decrease greenhouse gas emissions. For transit agencies with service areas that include disadvantaged communities, at least 50% of funds must be spent in disadvantaged communities identified by CalEnviroScreen. Each year, the State Controller’s Office prepares a list of eligible recipients and the amounts they can be allocated in accordance with the STA revenue-based formula or the STA population-based formula. The program awarded $24.2 million in FY 2014-15 and $74.7 million in FY 2015-16 for a total of $98.9 million.
