FTA Section 5311(f) - Intercity Bus Program

FTA Section 5311(f) provides funding for public transportation equipment and services connecting rural areas to urbanized areas.  Caltrans administers the 5311(f) program for California.  Applications should be authorized by SRTA.  In past years, SRTA was awarded funding for an 'airporter' feasibility study (2016), and First Class Shuttle of Redding was awarded 5311(f) funding for a new shuttle van that takes passengers from Redding down to Sacramento International Airport (2014).  Shasta County was awarded 5311(f) funding from 2015-2019 for Burney Express Transit Services operations. In 2020, SRTA was awarded $600,000 to support operations of the Salmon Runner and Valley Feeder bus routes, which are key components of the North State Intercity Bus System. SRTA and Shasta County submitted applications for operations assistance funding for Salmon Runner and Burney Express bus service in April 2021, and the results of the applications are expected to be announced in June 2021.
