SRTA seeks proposals from qualified consultants to prepare the North State Intercity Bus to Rail Plan.
The goal of the North State Intercity Bus to Rail Plan is to coordinate and plan for better intercity bus options in the short- and mid-term and improved passenger rail transportation in the long- term between the Shasta Region and the large metropolitan areas of Greater Sacramento, the Bay Area, and north into Oregon as well as improve connections across the North State. Transit planning and coordination around the I-5 and SR 101 corridors is an immediate need because transit agencies must coordinate and plan for upcoming state and federal zero emission requirements to maintain and enhance intercity bus connections. This will further support intercity transportation planning and coordination and identify how to meet zero emission transportation infrastructure goals aligned to the California Intercity Bus Study (CIBS) in addition to rail planning. The plan will include an assessment of the rail hubs that are currently located in nearby communities as well as future service areas (e.g., those under consideration by BCAG for train service to Chico/Oroville) to identify the best ways to improve intermodal connections for travelers in the North State.
This project is funded by a Caltrans Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant (Strategic Partnership Grant (FTA 5304)) and Local Transportation Funds (LTF). The estimated contract award budget is $190,000. Work on the North State Intercity Bus to Rail Plan is expected to be complete by February 2025.
