ENVIRONMENTAL ENHANCEMENT – $59.8 million or 3.5%
This program’s goal is to improve air quality and the environment through two important programs:
- The School Bus Replacement Program will replace the oldest school buses in the fleet that emit toxic fumes and emissions. Approximately 900 buses need to be replaced. The result will be cleaner fueled and with the addition of seat belts, safer buses for our school age children. Approximately $40 million is provided to this program.
- Transit Oriented Infrastructure for In-Fill Development (TOD), is a study to assist local cities and the county in planning for alternate transit services. This allows each community to build up the existing system as they continue to grow in new or revitalized developments areas
ADMINISTRATION / PLANNING -$25.6 million or 1.5%
Measure C funding is provided to the Fresno COG and to the Fresno County Transportation Authority (Authority) to:
- Prepare Expenditure Plan updates
