Measure L Community Connections and Rail Services Call for Projects

Measure L is a 25-year, ½ cent sales tax which was approved by Stanislaus County voters in November of 2016. Over the course of the 25-year plan according to the Measure L Expenditure Plan, it is estimated that $960 million dollars will be generated for local transportation investments. Measure L funding will serve as an investment that will leverage future local, State, and Federal grant opportunities.

Measure L includes an allocation for Other Transportation Programs and Services which includes:

  • Point-to-Point Services for Seniors, Veterans, and Persons with Disabilities – funds are allocated to the MOVE program;
  • Transit Services -funds are allocated directly to the public transit providers, Stanislaus Regional Transit Authority and Turlock Transit;
  • Community Connections; and
  • Rail Services

The Community Connections and Rail Services categories do not have a direct allocation.

Eligible applicants for the Community Connections and Rail Services funds include StanCOG, the ten local jurisdictions (Ceres, Hughson, Modesto, Newman, Oakdale, Patterson, Riverbank, Turlock, Waterford, and Stanislaus County), and the transit agencies in the region.
