The Low Carbon Transit Operations Program (LCTOP) is a program funded by auction proceeds from the California Air Resources Board Cap-and-Trade Program. LCTOP provides public transportation operating and capital assistance to transit agencies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve mobility through new and enhanced services. LCTOP funding comes to the region through an annual formula allocation. Projects in the region have included development of a new Crosstown Express service with RABA (including free fares), support for a Sunday Transit Service Demonstration Project, and a Regional Reduced and Free Transit Fare Program.
