The California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) this week awarded $690 million in grants to 28 projects through the Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program (TIRCP).
The program funds capital improvement projects that modernize intercity rail, bus and ferry transit systems to reduce emissions and congestion. Combined, the 28 projects will directly benefit disadvantaged communities and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 2 million metric tons, California Gov.

The funding is part of a multiyear, multibillion-dollar investment to upgrade the state’s transit systems. In January, the state awarded $2.54 billion to 16 projects under TIRCP’s previous round of funding.
