MTC Finalizes Regional ATP Award Recommendations

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) this week finalized awards for the 2014 Regional Competitive Active Transportation Program (ATP).  MTC approved funding 11 projects totaling $30.9 million in the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Sonoma, and for the regional bicycle share program. This represents the addition of one project in Contra Costa County over the earlier MTC staff proposal. The final description of projects can be found here.

Forty percent of the state ATP funding is being awarded by Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) in urban areas with populations more than 200,000. At least 25% required to benefit disadvantaged communities. MTC’s share of the ATP funding for 2014 was about $30 million. MTC received 127 applications requesting over $200 million.

This list still needs final approval from the California Transportation Commission (CTC), which will consider adopting the regional portion of ATP on November 12.
