September 27, 2012, Caltrans proposed funding SRTS from a $21 million set aside in the STP. This concept was approved by the CTC as a one year policy. Future funding for SRTS will be determined through the MAP-21 Implementation process.
July 6, 2012, MAP-21, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act was signed into law. Under MAP-21, SRTS was consolidated into the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), but is eligible for Surface Transportation Program (STP) and Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funds.
Program assistance is available through a California specific SRTS website at: http://www.casaferoutestoschool.org/. The website was funded through a Non-Infrastructure SRTS statewide grant to help communities plan, develop, and implement successful SRTS projects
