Unmet Transit Needs Process
As the administrator of Transportation Development Act (TDA) funds for Butte County, BCAG is charged with performing the annual Unmet Transit Needs process. The purpose of this process is to ensure that all unmet transit needs that are reasonable to meet are met before funds are expended for non-transit uses, such as streets and roads.
Unmet transit needs are those trips required, but currently not provided and not scheduled to be provided within Butte County, for individuals dependent on public transit to maintain a minimum standard of living.
Reasonable to meet shall include all of the following criteria:
The public is invited to provide comments on existing or desired public transportation services within Butte County at an Open House forum on unmet transit needs at the following meetings:
