For Implementation Of Sustainable Communities Strategies And Work On Greenhouse Gas Reductions
Type of SupportProject
TransForm is the leading Bay Area organization working to create world-class public transportation and walkable communities. In addition, TransForm is the fiscal co-sponsor of ClimatePlan, a coalition of organizations committed to protect California’s climate, environment and health through improving land use planning. The grant’s goal is to ensure the implementation of California’s Senate Bill 375, which is the legislation that mandates the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through transportation and land use planning. The targets drafted by California Air Resources Board for SB375 will reduce 15 million metric tons by 2035. TransForm and ClimatePlan will support the development and adoption of Sustainable Communities Strategies and integrated regional transportation plans, to reach the targets adopted by SB375 in the main metropolitan regions of California.

Grants to this Grantee
for the ClimatePlan and World Class Transit Regional programs
TransForm promotes clean transportation policies. The purpose of this grant is to renew support for ClimatePlan, a TransForm program which coordinates efforts to reduce emissions from transportation and land-use planning. TransForm’s focus for next year is the development and adoption of strong transit and land-use plans in the San Joaquin Valley and Bay Area. China Sustainable Cities Special Initiative
for general operating support
TransFormCA works to create world-class public transportation and walkable communities in the Bay Area. With this renewed general support, TransFormCA would continue to work in its three main programs: Safe Routes to School: for children walking and biking to school; Bus Rapic Transit, effective public transportation specially for low income communities, and GreenTrip, a program to design better homes for people of all incomes near transit. Ultimately, TransFormCA’s programs would ensure the reduction of vehicle emissions contributing to climate change and air pollution in the Bay Area.
