BACKGROUND INFORMATION: As part of the Measure A Commuter Assistance Program, the Commission provides funding support to buspools used by Riverside County residents for their commutes along the Route 91 and Route 60 corridors. The Commission adopted the Measure A buspool subsidy in October 1990 and established a monthly subsidy rate of $1,175 or $25/seat/month in support of commuter buspool operations. To provide additional guidance, the Commission also established a minimum buspool ridership. policy in June 1995. The policy requires staff to report to the Commission when a buspool's ridership falls to 25 or below and seek direction regarding the continuation of the buspool's subsidy. In July 2004, the Commission set the subsidy rate to $35/seat/month to help with increased operational costs realized by buspool riders during the previous 14 years. While the monthly cost of each buspool varies according to the number of route miles and the resulting negotiated service price, the Commission's monthly subsidy reflects a subsidy rate of 16%. AveragelMonthly Buspool -FO"re:RerfSeatnggizzoRxx $ 216.50 F3C,TC°Subsidy'„ Peri Seat $35.00 16% 5 The four existing buspools have completed all the requirements for funding as set forth by the Commission including submittal of monthly ridership reports and annual funding continuation requests. They have consistently exceeded the minimum ridership level of 25 riders per month and have collectively averaged 42 riders/month/buspool this current fiscal year.

In addition, while considering other factors such as the reduction of vehicles on Route 91 and Route 60 during peak periods and the elimination of mobile source emissions, the annual buspool subsidy is an effective use of Measure A commuter assistance funds.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: At the June 14, 2006 Commission meeting, the FY 2006/07 - FY 2008/09 Short Range Transit Plans (SRTP) were approved. As previously reported the SRTPs cover the county's three apportionment areas and consist of plans for the cities of Banning, Beaumont (collectively Pass Transit System), Corona, Riverside, Palo Verde Valley Transit Agency, Riverside Transit Agency, SunLine Transit Agency, and RCTC's Regional Commuter Rail program. While the SRTPs outline the planned capital expenditures for a three year period, operating service levels and funding requests are only provided for year -one of the three-year plan. As the Transportation Planning Agency (TPA), RCTC is responsible for planning transit services, operator oversight/fiduciary responsibilities and allocation of transit funds. The FY 2006/07 SRTP estimates that $138,552,083 in funding is required to support the operating and capital requests for the provision of Riverside County transit services. The following chart provides an overview of the operating and 11 capital costs together with projected ridership levels ,by apportionment area and transit operator: AGENCY/APPORTIONMENT AREA Operating Capital Total Costs Ridership City of Banning $ 1 164,743 $ 34,950 $ 1,199,693 205,000 City of Beaumont $ 1,200,000 $ 140,000 $ 1,340,000 125,500 City of Corona $ 1,802,500 $ 50,000 $ 1,852,500 217,400 Riverside Special Services $ 2,626,840 $ 1,920,000 $ 4,546,840 156,899 Riverside Transit Agency $ 43,665,697 $ 7,742,116 $ 51,407,813 7,142,589 WestemCounty: Bua$ 50,459,780 $ 9,887,066 $ 60,346,846 7,847,388 Western County: Rail' $ 7 106 600 $ 14,537,035 $ 21,643,635 2,874,48E WESTERN COUNTY: TOTA-$ 57,566,380 $ 24,424,101 $ 81,990,481 10,721,874 SunLine Transit Agency $ 19,050 505 $ 8,935,772 $ 8,935,772 $ 27,986,277 $ 27,986,277 3,500,429 3,500,429 COACHELLA VALLEY: TOTALS 19,050,505 Palo Verde Valley Transit Agency $ 810 575 $ 81 850 $ 892,425 54,292 PALO VERDE VALLEY: TOTAL$ 810,575 $ 81,850 $ 892,425 54,292 TOTAL: ALL APPORTIONMENT AREAS: $ 77,427,460 $ 33,441,723 $ 110,869,183 14,276,595 'Commuter Rail's costs include RCTC's share of approximately $7.1 million plus LA Metro, OCTA and SANBAG's share of approximately $27.7 million.

The remaining balance of approximately $98 million ($138.5 million - $40.5 million) consists of federal, state and local funds that are allocated through Commission action. , ALLOCATION OF FY 2006/07 FUNDING Federal Funding: Section 5307, Section 5309 and Section 5311 Section 5307 Formula Funds On an annual basis, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) distributes. federal ' operating and capital block grant funds to urbanized areas through its Section 5307 Program. There are four urbanized areas in Riverside County: 1) Riverside/San Bernardino; 2) Hemet/San Jacinto;. 3) Temecula/Murrieta; and 4) Indio/Cathedral City/Palm Springs. Prior to an operator submitting its Section 5307 grant application to FTA, the Commission must develop and approve a Program of Projects (POP) for each urbanized area and conduct a public hearing. Attachment 1 consists of the proposed Section 5307 POPs for Riverside County; they contain projects identified in the SRTPs. The draft POPs, if not amended through the public hearing process, will become final as presented and will be included in an approved Regional Transportation Improvement Program and subsequently forwarded to the Southern California Association of Governments for review and processing. The actual Section 5307 apportionments for FY 2006/07 will not be known until later this calendar year when final appropriations are made by Congress. The Program of Projects were developed at the highest anticipated funding amount to allow the operators to proceed with their grant applications and to avoid delays associated with program amendments and additional paperwork should the actual apportionments come in lower than estimated. Balances, if any, will be carried over to subsequent fiscal years and will be made available to meet future transit needs. Section 5309 Discretionary Funds The Section 5309 program provides capital assistance, on a discretionary basis, for new and replacement buses and related facilities. For FY 2006/07, the Riverside 13 Transit Agency -IRTA) and SunLine Transit Agency (SunLine) have identified projects totaling $1,814,299 in Section 5309 discretionary funds. Prior to the operators accessing these funds, the projects must be included in an approved Regional Transportation Improvement Program. Section 5311 Formula and Discretionary Funds The Section 5311 Rural Transit Assistance Program available through the FTA provides federal operating assistance funds for rural transit operators. These funds are administered by Caltrans and the majority of the funds are passed through to counties based on a population formula. The remaining funds, if, sufficient to justify a call for projects, are awarded in a statewide discretionary program by Caltrans for rural capital projects and intercity bus programs. Transit operators in counties where formula funds are fully programmed submit projects for discretionary funding to Caltrans. In order for grants to be approved, the Commission must develop and approve a Section 5311 Program of Projects. This year's program was prepared using the FY 2005/06 funding level for transit operations. As with the Section 5307 program, the actual apportionments will not be known until later this calendar year when final appropriations are made by Congress. By programming at what may be a higher level of funding, the operators will be able to apply for maximum funding and avoid delays and additional work to amend programs and grants. Section 5311 Formula Program The proposed program allocates the estimated $635,973 in formula funds for Riverside County in FY 2006/07 to RTA at 61.7% and SunLine at 38.3%. The 61.7%/38.3% formula was approved by the Commission in 1987 and was based on the level of service each agency operated in the non -urbanized areas of the county. In FY 2002/03, Commission staff discussed the formula with staff from RTA and SunLine to determine if the formula was still applicable. Both agencies agreed that the formula should remain at the current percentage splits. Following is the proposed FY 2006/07 Section 5311 Program of Projects: Section 5311 Formula Funds COUNTY - 100% Federal Funds Available $635,973 FY 2005/06 Estimated Carry Over $448,599 COUNTY WIDE TOTAL: $1,084,572 RTA - 61.7% SunLine - 38.3% $392,395 $243,578 $276,786 $171,813 $669,181 $415,391 • • 14 Both RTA and SunLine identified the use of Section 5311 formula funds for operating during FY 2006/07. Should additional funds be identified, available funds will be carried over and available for programming in FY 2007/08. Discretionary Section 5311 Funds RTA has identified the use of $39,480 in discretionary Section 5311 funding for the use of shelters and benches for rural bus stops. It is not known at this time whether Caltrans will release an additional call for projects in FY 2006/07 for discretionary rural transit projects. Should Caltrans release a call for projects, all transit operators will be contacted about the availability of funds. Transportation Development Act Funding The Transportation Development Act (TDA) provides two major sources of funding for public transportation. The first, the Local Transportation Fund (LTF), provides for a Y4 cent of the 71/4% state retail sales tax collected in each county. The State Board of Equalization returns the sales tax revenues to the County of Riverside where it is held until the Commission provides written allocation instructions for disbursement. For FY 2006/07, it is estimated that LTF revenue for transit services will be $63,256,158. State Transit Assistance (STA) funding is the second source of TDA funds. STA funds are generated from the statewide sales tax on motor vehicle fuel (gasoline and diesel). The STA funds are appropriated to the State Controller for allocation by formula to each TPA. RCTC is responsible for the allocation of these funds for Riverside County. The formula allocates 50% of the funds on the basis of the region's population compared to the State's population (STA 99313 Funds). The remaining 50% is allocated according to the prior year proportion of the region's transit operator passenger fare and local support revenues (STA 99314 Funds). According to the State Controller's Office, the amount of STA funds projected to be received in Riverside County for FY 2006/07 is $6,924,442 ($5,989,149 is 99313 discretionary funds and $935,293 is 99314 non -discretionary operator funds). Prior to approving the STA allocations, the Commission must adopt the attached Resolution as specified in the Transportation Development Act Statutes, California Code of Regulations. In order for the public transit operators to claim LTF and/or STA funds for operating and capital purposes, the Commission must allocate funds to support the transit services and capital projects contained in the FY 2006/07 SRTP. The requested allocations are consistent with the approved SRTPs and the funds are explicitly for the projects as stated in the approved plans. Attachment 2 outlines the specific operators' requested TDA allocations for FY 2006/07. 15 Although the City of Beaumont's (Beaumont) FY 2006/07 — FY 2008/09 SRTP was approved, the Commission cannot allocate any TDA funding for FY 2006/07 pending the completion of Beaumont's FY 2003/04 and FY 2004/05 financial audits. As stated in Public Utilities Code (PUC) 6664: "In accordance with PUC Code Section 99245, a report of a fiscal and compliance audit made by an independent auditor shall be submitted by each claimant within 180 days after the end of the fiscal year, except that the responsible entity, as defined in Section 6663, may grant an extension of up to 90 days as it deems necessary. No allocation shall be made to any claimant that is delinquent in its submission of a fiscal and compliance audit report." Based on discussions with Beaumont staff, it is anticipated that Beaumont's financial audits will be completed by the end of July. Upon completion of the financial audits, Commission staff will request an allocation of TDA funds for FY 2005/06 and FY 2006/07. Staff recommends the approval of the TDA and FTA funds as presented. As in previous years, any modifications in fare box revenues, federal grants, Measure A funding, or carry over funds may require operators to revise their services to operate within the funding limitations.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: In accordance with Public Utilities Code 99246, the Commission is required to designate an entity other than itself to conduct a performance audit of its activities and the activities of each operator to whom we allocate funds. The audits are required to evaluate the efficiency, effectiveness and economy of the Commission and the public transit operators. The audits must be conducted in accordance with the guidelines set by the State Comptroller General's Office. These audits are required every three years and our next audit must be completed by June 30, 2007. The audits will cover FY 2003/04, 2004/05 and FY 2005/06 and will include the Commission and the seven public operators: the City of Banning, City of Beaumont, City of Corona, City of Riverside Special Services, Palo Verde Valley Transit Agency, Riverside Transit Agency and SunLine Transit Agency. It should be noted that RCTC's Commuter Rail program is included as part of the Southern California Regional Rail Association's performance audit. 26 It is anticipated that the cost for both the Commission audit and the seven public operators should not exceed $100,000 and will be paid for with Local Transportation Funds.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: With the passage of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), the following two new funding sources for transit service are available: 1) Jobs Access Reverse Commute (Section 5316) provides formula'funding for the development and maintenance of job access projects to transport welfare recipients and low-income individuals to and from work during non -peak hours as well as supply reverse commute options for workers in suburban cores; and 2) New Freedoms (Section 5317) provides formula funding for new public transportation services and alternatives for people with disabilities beyond what is required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 'Previously, FTA made funding available for the Jobs Access Reverse Commute program through a discretionary process. 28 The following chart identifies the funding level, by program, for the three large urbanized areas in Riverside County: Jobs Access Reverse Urbanized Area Commute New Freedoms Indio -Cathedral City -Palm Springs $ 167,671 $ 77,913 Riverside -San Bernardino" 1,025,531 390,840 Temecula-Murrieta 87,126 58,221 Total: $. 1,280,328 $ 526,974 'Actual dollar amount for each county to be determined at a later date. Staff also anticipates that some funding will be available in the Hemet -San Jacinto urbanized area; however, at this time, the actual funding amount has not been identified. Commission staff will be attending a meeting with Caltrans on Tuesday, June 20, 2006 to begin discussions on funding availability. A verbal report will be provided at the Plans and Programs Committee meeting as to the results of this meeting. In addition to these new funding sources, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) makes funding available through Caltrans for the Section 5310 program which provides capital grants for the purpose of assisting private nonprofit corporations and public agencies in providing transportation services to meet the needs of seniors and persons with disabilities for whom public transportation services are otherwise unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate. SAFETEA-LU requires that programs for the Section 5310 program, the Job Access Reverse Commute program (JARC) and New Freedom program, be derived from a Coordinated Public Transit -Human Services Transportation Plan. While SAFETEA- LU did not fully define the elements required for developing a coordinated plan, the following guidance was subsequently provided by staff from FTA and the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) for developing the plan: 1) Create a locally developed coordinated plan that identifies service gaps and duplication of service; - 2) Involve stakeholders in coordinated planning process; 3) With input from stakeholders develop competitive project selection from coordinated plan; 4) Create criteria for sub -recipient solvency; 5) Ensure projects comply with the Transportation Improvement Program and the State Transportation Improvement Program; and 6) Coordinate project evaluation methods and create budget for long term grant management. • • 29 • Commission staff has been actively involved in the on -going discussions regarding the new funding sources and will continue to meet with local, state and federal staff to define the elements required for developing the local coordination plan. In the interim, staff is requesting Commission approval to develop a Request for Proposal (RFP) to assist with developing the coordination plan and recommends that two representatives from our transit operators be included in the evaluation panel. Once the consultant is selected and approved by the Commission, staff further recommends that a technical advisory committee consisting of a representative from each transit operator together with one member from the Commission's Citizens Advisory Committee/Social Service Transportation Advisory Council be formed to guide the development of the plan.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Over a period of months, the chief executive officers of the transportation commissions in Southern California have discussed the parameters of an agreement where, through a collaborative effort, the goods movement needs in the region could be addressed. In January 2005, the Commission approved participation in the development of a Multi -County Goods Movement Action Plan in order to form a consensus for an implementation plan for the region. Scheduled to be completed early next year, the plan will describe and model goods movement growth and trends, identify possible partnerships with the private sector, highlight short, mid, and long-term strategies, as well as identify a list of possible projects to be funded. Further, with the placement of the $19.9 billion state transportation infrastructure bond measure on the November ballot, developing a consensus on Southern California projects becomes even more critical so that the region can be well positioned to receive those funds. Riverside County could be eligible for state funding for goods movement projects through the following programs created by the infrastructure bond: the Trade Corridors Improvement Fund, Highway -Railroad Crossing Safety Account, State -Local Partnership Program, and Corridor Mobility Improvement Account. 31 Purpose of the MOA In an effort to evaluate, select, plan, and finance strategies for constructing goods movement projects, a timely issue to consider is the forum and framework, which will bring those projects to fruition. The proposed MOA represents a proactive step whereby the transportation agencies in Southern California will commit to developing a goods movement strategy through inter -county coordination. The MOA is part of a regional consensus plan whereby transportation agencies within the region have come together to deliver a single message to state and federal policymakers underscoring the need for funding goods movement projects. To this end, the MOA further delineates the scope of the on -going collaboration among the participating agencies originally undertaken as part of the Multi -County Goods Movement Action Plan. The MOA recognizes the need for regional transportation agencies to eventually form public/private partnerships in order to successfully complete projects. The purpose of the three-year, voluntary MOA is to further solidify goods movement policies in Southern California without establishing a new governmental body. While various alternative institutional models were discussed, ranging from "no agency" to the establishment of a "new agency," the chief executive officers reached a consensus that a goods movement plan could be developed and implemented in a spirit of cooperation and communication. ATTACHMENT: Draft Memorandum of Agreement 32 MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT AMONG COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSIONS TO COLLABORATIVELY DEVELOP THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GOODS MOVEMENT STRATEGY This Memorandum of Agreement herein referred to as "MOA", is entered into as of , 2006 by and among the County Transportation Commissions ("CTCs") of Southern California, namely the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority ("MTA"), Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA"), Riverside County Transportation Commission ("RCTC"), San Bernardino Associated Governments ("SANBAG"), and the Ventura County Transportation Commission ("VCTC"). Each of the agencies described above (as well as any agencies joining this MOA in the future) shall be collectively referred to herein as the "CTCs". WHEREAS, the combined ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are the largest gateway for containerized imports into the United States and the fifth largest port in the world; and the Port of Hueneme is among the nation's leaders in•fresh produce and fruit exports and automobile imports; and WHEREAS, Southern California serves as the principal conduit of goods between the United States and Asia at major cost to its transportation infrastructure, environmental quality and human health, and community livability; and WHEREAS, goods movement within Southern California comprises an important regional economic opportunity if transportation, environmental health, and community impacts can be remedied; and WHEREAS, the MTA, OCTA, RCTC, SANBAG, and VCTC have a common interest to address the transportation deficiencies, environmental challenges, and economic opportunities associated with goods movement in and through Southern California; and WHEREAS, it is envisioned that many of the plans, policies, strategies, and projects to address the challenges and grasp the opportunities afforded by goods movement in Southern California will be multi -county in scope; and WHEREAS, collaboration and cooperation among the CTCs to develop these goods movement plans, policies, strategies, and projects, and similar collaboration in the areas of public outreach and political advocacy is expected to yield the best results for Southern California as a whole. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that: 1. A collaborative effort will be undertaken by the CTCs in order to prioritize and phase the strategies, projects, and measures needed to address transportation, environmental, and community issues associated with goods movement within and through Southern California. 33 2. Each CTC shall designate a lead staff for all communications and correspondence among the CTCs pursuant to this MOU. 3. Each CTC shall make a good faith effort to notify other CTCs regarding discussions or negotiations on regional goods movement issues with federal, state, private sector, or other CTC representatives. 4. The CTCs recognize the benefits of having defined regional points of contact, and will establish such as needed for various goods movement negotiations, initiatives, and decision -making. 5. The CTCs commit to have regular discussions regarding their efforts in regional goods movement as part of the quarterly Regional Transportation Agencies Coalition meetings, monthly meetings among the Executive Directors of the CTCs, and through the Multi - County Goods Movement Action Plan. 6. It is not the intent of this agreement to establish new authority(ies) for sponsorship or delivery of transportation improvements beyond authorities already granted by state law absent possible future agreements defining a regional goods movement formal structure, as described herein. 7. This MOA will take effect upon signing by all the CTCs, and may be amended only by written revision, signed by all the CTCs. 8. This agreement will remain in effect for a period of three years from the date of execution. 9. Other public agencies responsible for aspects of goods movement in Southern California may become signatories to this agreement by amendment to this agreement. 10. Any CTC may cease to be a party to this agreement by providing written notice of such termination to all other signatories IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have signed this MOA on the dates set forth below their signatures.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: On July 14, 2006, the Mobile Source Reduction Review Committee of the South Coast Air Quality District (MSRC) will formally sunset their "Get Home on Us" program. This program guaranteed an emergency ride home for people who used a rideshare mode for travel to and from work. It was fully funded and managed by the MSRC. In the four years it was in operation, it served 353 enrolled employers throughout the region with an employee pool of 97,135 people. The service provided 305 emergency rides during the contract period. The role of such a program is to fund and provide an emergency ride home for people who rideshare to work. These emergency rides are provided either by contracted rental car service or contracted taxi service. By ensuring a means for an emergency ride home for ridesharers, the attractiveness of ridesharing over solo commuting is increased, something which has been substantiated by MSRC surveys regarding the performance of their program. In anticipation of the discontinuance of the MSRC program, the CTCs last fall banded together to again cooperate in the provision of a ridesharing service that would be regional in scope with a specialized local delivery mechanism. On July 15, 2006 the CTCs will formally implement their version of the program. This program which is now known as "Guaranteed Ride Home" will continue to provide our ridesharers with this emergency ride home benefit. The contractor selected to deliver the service and work at the direction of the MTA is TransVironmental Solutions (TVS) of Diamond Bar, California. TVS was selected 35 as a result of a competitive RFP process managed by the MTA with input and review coming from all of the CTC partners. The annual share cost estimated for RCTC is $15,000, which is included in the Commuter Assistance Program Budget for FY 2006/07. The service delivery area for the Commission includes all of Western County and the Coachella Valley.
