TransFormCA works to create world-class public transportation and walkable communities. This grant would support ClimatePlan, a program that convenes and coordinates efforts to reduce carbon emissions from transportation and land-use planning in California through the implementation of Sustainable Community Strategies in five metropolitan regions: the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, San Joaquin Valley, Los Angeles, and San Diego. The focus for this coming year is the implementation and funding of all approved strategies to achieve the projected reductions of an average 15 percent per capita emissions by 2035, and preparations for the next round of strategies to achieve the long-term goal of an 80 percent cut by 2050.

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.
