California Department of Transportation

Mass Transportation/Transit Planning

Making transit a more practical travel option is one of the Department's six goals. While the Department is widely recognized as being responsible for the State's highways and freeways, not many people are aware of the Department's interest in helping to improve and expand transit service. We recognize that transit is a vital component of the State's transportation system. As part of our work to make transit a more practical travel option, the Department administers a variety of transit funding programs, indicated below.
