VACAVILLE — Staff will seek authorization from City Council on Tuesday to submit a grant application in order to bring $171,388 from a Metropolitan Transportation Commission program to the city.
The Transit Performance Initiative was created to reward transportation agencies that increase ridership and productivity. The criteria focus on an increase in passenger trips, increase in passenger trips per hour and annual passenger trips.
During the first cycle, City Coach received $232,000. Staff reports state that the lower funds received this year are due to a decreased amount of available money.
In order to get the funds, the transportation commission requires that a grant application package be submitted. The package includes projects that focus on increased productivity and ridership, such as marketing and public outreach.
The City Council meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the City Hall council chamber, 650 Merchant St.
