Transit Oriented Development

The 2000 Measure B Transportation Expenditure Plan provides for programmatic expenditures for Transit Center Development in the amount of 0.19 percent of net revenues, estimated to total $2.7 million over the life of the sales tax program in 1998 dollars. Approximately $185,000 to $190,000 is generated annually.

According to the Expenditure Plan, these funds are, “available to cities in the county and to Alameda County to encourage residential and retail development near transit centers.” Therefore, by definition, nonprofit agencies and transit operators are not directly eligible for these funds.

Transit Center Development funds are currently programmed toward the Sustainable Communities Technical Assistance Program to support the development of transportation planning studies such as specific plan development, corridor planning studies, streetscape designs and Priority Development Area studies.
