"Maximize state, federal and other revenues for cost-effective transportation investment strategies that connect communities, people and goods."
Background The Shasta Regional Transportation Agency (SRTA) is a legally separate public agency with its own governing board of directors. The board of directors consists of three members of the Shasta County Board of Supervisors, one member from each of the cities of Anderson, Redding, and Shasta Lake, and one member of the Redding Area Bus Authority (RABA).
SRTA studies the region’s transportation needs, pursues all potential funding sources, and determines what improvements will be made. Each year, the SRTA administers over $24 million in state and federal funds for the planning, construction, operation, and maintenance of transportation projects throughout Shasta County. Exactly how, when, and where this money is spent is determined by local values and priorities as represented by the SRTA Board of Directors.
These choices directly impact the daily lives of Shasta County’s residents in a number of ways, including economic development opportunities, environmental quality, public health and safety, access to transportation choices, and the cost of travel.
