SRTA submitted a grant application to -- and was awarded $223K -- Caltrans's Sustainable Transportation Planning Program for the North State Express Connect Business Plan on November 5, 2016. The requested grant amount is $223,203.  The grant application proposes to provide the details for an intercity bus network with a backbone I-5 service between Redding and Sacramento and feeder services linking Shasta, Modoc, Siskiyou, Humboldt, Lassen, Butte, Trinity, Tehama, Glenn, Lake and Colusa counties. It develops agreements with state, rail and regional partners and reaches out to rural, disadvantaged communities. It describes an environmentally friendly, secure, technology enabled service and develops cost analysis for operating and capital needs. The plan describes an accessible service to Sacramento International Airport, downtown Sacramento, and the Sacramento Amtrak Station for connections to the Capital Corridor, Coast Starlight, San Joaquin and eventual California High Speed Rail.
