As a result of input received from the public and the Commission, staff will make any necessary changes to the budget document for final review, close of the public hearing and adoption at the June 13, 2007 Commission meeting. The executive summary document contains a summary of all departmental budgets and summarizes the information for the entire Commission. The department budgets present the goals and objectives, the resources needed to accomplish the goals, and the appropriations required to accomplish the tasks. Staff has also Agenda Item 6 1 included the fund budgets, which provide the budgeted revenues and expenditures from a fund perspective. It should be noted that the Local Transportation Fund (LTF) special revenue fund, which has been an unbudgeted fund in prior years, is included as a budgeted fund in the FY 2007/08 Budget due to its significance to the Commission’s operations. At the June 13, 2007, Commission meeting, staff will present the entire budget with detailed narratives. A summary of the proposed Budget for FY 2007/08 is as follows: FY 2007/08 Budget Revenues and other financing sources: Sales taxes-Measure A and LTF $ 243,624,400 Reimbursements (federal, state, and other) 33,127,200 TUMF 27,250,000 State Transit Assistance 23,263,000 Other revenues 2,947,900 Interest on investments 16,678,500 Commercial paper proceeds 87,000,000 Transfers in 74,688,000 Total revenues and other financing sources 508,579,000 Expenditures and other financing uses: Personnel salary and fringe benefits 6,589,400 Professional services 8,370,300 Support services 2,662,200 Projects and operations 472,432,600 Capital outlay 942,000 Debt service (principal, interest and costs of issuance) 42,225,900 Transfers out 74,688,000 Total expenditures and other financing uses 607,910,400 Excess (deficiency) of revenues and other financing sources over (under) expenditures and other financing uses (99,331,400) Beginning fund balance 471,038,200 Ending fund balance $ 371,706,800 Attachment: FY 2007/08 Proposed Budget Executive Summary Agenda Item 6 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 AGENDA ITEM 8A Agenda Item 8A RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: May 9, 2007 TO: Riverside County Transportation Commission FROM: Budget and Implementation “Committee of the Whole” Theresia Trevino, Chief Financial Officer THROUGH: Eric Haley, Executive Director SUBJECT: Recurring Contracts for Fiscal Year 2007/08 BUDGET AND IMPLEMENTATION “COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE” AND STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the Commission to approve the recurring contracts for FY 2007/08. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Ten years ago, the Commission evaluated all recurring contracts to determine when and if to hold a competitive process. As a result of that review, most contracts were rebid. In addition, the Commission required that recurring contracts be approved at the beginning of each year. All other contracts are bid on a periodic basis ranging from three to five years. The following is a listing of recurring contracts proposed for FY 2007/08: Schedule of Recurring Contracts Consultant Name Description of Services Budget FY 06/07 Budget FY 07/08 Dollar Change Percent Change Best Best & Krieger General Legal Services $ 1,377,900 $ 1,518,900 $141,000 10.2% Caporicci & Larson TDA/Measure A Audit Services 200,000 210,000 10,000 5.0% Cingular Wireless Call Box Analog Cellular Service 35,000 32,000 (3,000) (8.6%) Comarco Wireless Technologies Call Box Maintenance 244,200 253,700 9,500 3.9% Inland Transportation Services (ITS) Commuter Assistance Program Management 1,386,000 1,700,000 314,000 22.7% MHV Enterprises, Inc.

General legal services related to management services, regional programs, regional arterial and rail projects are comparable to or lower than the prior year. Caporicci & Larson has performed the Transportation Development Act (TDA) and Measure A local jurisdiction financial and compliance audits. These services were competitively procured in 2003, and the term of the agreement was for originally for three years through June 30, 2006, but was extended for an additional year through the recurring contracts approval process. The Commission’s financial and compliance audit has been performed by another audit firm that was selected during the same procurement process; however, that agreement expires June 30, 2008. It would be more effective and efficient to have both audit firms with the same term through June 30, 2008, and conduct the audit procurements in January 2008 or February 2008. The Caporicci & Larson audit fees are similar to FY 2006/07 fees. The conversion of call boxes from analog to digital service by Cingular Wireless was delayed until completion of the call box removal project. The digital conversion project should be completed by December 2007. Accordingly, the contract related to analog service should be extended through December 31, 2007. Any expenditure incurred for analog service will be offset by a savings in the digital service contract. The Comarco Wireless Technologies (CWT) contract expires December 31, 2007 and provides for routine corrective and preventive maintenance of call boxes, including knockdowns and vandalism. CWT was selected as a result of a competitive procurement in 2001, in which it was the only responsive bidder, and has provided these services since the inception of the call box program. A request for proposal process is not anticipated immediately upon contract expiration, and CWT has been included as a recurring contract for the last six months of FY 2007/08. 23 Agenda Item 8A ITS has been included as a recurring contract since FY 2003/04 and is considered to be a unique sole source provider for the administration of the Commuter Assistance Program (CAP). The FY 2007/08 CAP budget includes nine new or expanded projects, which have been added to ITS’ scope of work. A portion of the increase in the ITS contract is related to services provided for the San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) CAP, for which the Commission is reimbursed. MHV Enterprises, Inc. owns the copyright the Ridemaster software used in the CAP. It has licensed the software to three local transportation agencies, including the Commission. The software tracks client support, commuter participation, and other data as necessary to monitor program performance and protect against fraud. Due to the proprietary nature of the ongoing support, maintenance, and enhancement of the software, MHV Enterprises should continue to be included as a recurring contract. Rahimian has provided project management services related to oversight of the geotechnical work and special permit application process on the Riverside County- Orange County (RCOC) CETAP Corridor project, and this contract expires February 28, 2008. It is anticipated that the geotechnical work and related evaluation will be conducted in 2008 with final reports due in February 2009. Based on the level of work associated with this geotechnical feasibility study and Mr. Rahimian’s knowledge and expertise with the RCOC Major Investment Study (MIS), it is recommended that this contract be extended through June 30, 2009. Ray Gorski has provided on-call technical services to the Commission primarily in the areas of air quality and alternative fuels. Projects funded with Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) funds are required to have project level air quality analyses. His services were required this year for the North Main Corona parking structure and the SR-60 high occupancy vehicle (HOV) conversion project. As the Commission continues to commit CMAQ funds on projects, it is essential to have the ability to utilize Mr. Gorski’s services. During FY 2007/08, an air quality analyses will be needed for a CMAQ call for projects for Salton Sea Air Basin apportionment funding. Proposals were solicited for a ridematching software program for the Inland Empire, and a contract was awarded to Trapeze in 2002. Subsequently the software/license agreement was expanded to include Orange, Los Angeles, and Ventura Counties functionality. The software also has been customized over the past years in response to the unique regional air quality requirements. As a result of the customization and five-county regional partnership, this contract has been included in the recurring contracts since FY 2005/06. The $37,000 increase in the contract for FY 2007/08 is related to the completion of the Rideguide and transit integration project, which is funded by a grant from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC). 24 Agenda Item 8A VRPA Technologies, Inc. provides assistance with activities related to the Congestion Management Program (CMP), including traffic monitoring. During FY 2007/08, VRPA Technologies, Inc. work efforts will include the biennial update of the CMP in addition to quarterly traffic monitoring of the CMP system. These contracts have already been included in the proposed FY 2007/08 Budget, and, as such, no budget adjustment is required.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The Commission, acting in its capacity as the Riverside County Service Authority for Freeway Emergencies (SAFE), released a request for proposals (RFP) on March 21st for tow truck service on Beat 4, 8, 18 and 19 of the FSP program. Bids were due April 20th and proposals were received from two tow service providers – Armada Towing and Pepe’s Towing. An evaluation committee consisting of representatives from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) Inland Division, Caltrans District 8, San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG), and Commission staff reviewed the proposals for completeness and responsiveness. The Committee discussed the proposals and finalized the scoring of the proposals based on the criteria set forth in the RFP. Based upon the average score of the evaluation committee Agenda Item 8D 30 members, the Committee recommends that Beat Nos. 4 and 8 be awarded to Armada Towing and Beat Nos. 18 and 19 be awarded to Pepe’s Towing. Each contract award reflects a three-year contract with two one-year options. FSP Beat Description Recommend Award Beat No.4 Magnolia Ave to 60/91/215 IC Armada Beat No.8 NEW – SR-60 / I-215 Interchange to Theodore St Armada Beat No.18 RC line to Alessandro Pepe’s Beat No.19 NEW - Alessandro Blvd to SR-74 (4th St.) Pepe’s Beat Nos. 4 and 18 are both existing beats that will expire at the end of this fiscal year. Beat Nos. 8 and 19 are new FSP beats that both start in August 2007. In addition to extending FSP coverage on the SR-60 and I-215, Beats 8 and 19 function to help move a demo project forward that entails the HOV lane on SR-60 between Day Street and Redlands Boulevard to operate as a mixed flow lane during off peak hours. The emission reductions realized from the two new beats will help meet a requirement to proceed with the demo by offsetting the forecasted increase in emissions. All obligations incurred by the Commission under the terms of this award are funded 80% from state funds and 20% from local SAFE fees and are subject to continued funding from the state of California for the Riverside County Freeway Service Patrol program.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: In FY 2006, the Commission awarded $1,557,594 to fund 27 projects as part of its SB 821 Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Program. The agencies have until June 30, 2007 to complete the projects. The city of Lake Elsinore was allocated $11,250 for construction of the Mohr Street sidewalk project, $33,900 for the construction of the Sumner Avenue sidewalk project, and $23,500 for the construction of the La Strada Street sidewalk project. All three projects are part of larger community development block grant (CDBG) funded projects which involved more complex right-of-way issues. The plans, specifications and cost estimates are complete for the projects. The City was also allocated $52,750 for construction of four projects in FY 2006/07 and has until June 30, 2008, to complete those projects. The City has decided to combine the projects for both fiscal years to minimize administrative costs for advertising, inspecting and constructing these projects. Therefore, the City is requesting a 12-month extension to June 30, 2008, to complete the three projects funded in FY 2006.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: At its September 2006 meeting, the Commission approved the Southern California National Freight Gateway MOU, which contemplated approval by various agencies (federal, state, and the Southern California Transportation Commissions). However, the MOU was not executed. Subsequent discussions with U.S. Department of Transportation and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have led to a revised agreement in lieu of the original Southern California National Freight Gateway MOU. The resulting partnership agreement is shorter and simpler than the earlier proposed MOU, and substantially the same (i.e. documents agreement for key agencies to begin to collaborate on the framework strategy to address the increasing goods movement problems and serious air quality challenges facing Southern California.) In summary, four points that underlie this agreement are: 35 Agenda Item 8F • The work of the group will be to assist in coordination among the affected agencies and interests to develop an effective strategy for the Southern California Freight Gateway. While development of the strategy may be accomplished by various, more focused initiatives or efforts, it will be a key function of the partners to make sure that the products of these various initiatives are coordinated and come together as a coherent, effective and efficient system-wide framework strategy for the National Freight Gateway. • The partners are not intended to be a super decision-makers group; decisions are to be left to the formal decision-makers. • There are early key topics that need to be addressed on a priority basis. These include, the following: - Air quality attainment, in light of current efforts to develop an Air Quality Management Plan that will timely achieve PM 2.5 and ozone standards; - Funding sources and related institutions, a concern reflected in the State Goods Movement Action Plan; - Prioritization and scheduling of infrastructure projects (including “green infrastructure”) in accordance with a system-wide plan (i.e. Multi-County Goods Movement Action Plan); - Approaches to address cumulative and system-wide environmental and community impacts that lead to efficient and timely environmental compliance and implementation; and - Development of principles based on the Southern California effort that might serve as input to the 1909 Commission for inclusion in the next reauthorization of the National Transportation Act. • Federal representation would include USDOT, USEPA, Fish and Wildlife Service, National Marine Fisheries Service, and the Army Corps of Engineers; and • As various topics are addressed, there is an appreciation that the affected constituency of agencies and interests should be engaged as well (i.e., private interests such as shippers and railroads as well as environmental and community interests.) The partnership agreement is anticipated to be executed by all parties by next month. Approval of this agreement will replace the Southern California National Freight Gateway MOU that was never executed. Attachment: Draft Partnership Agreement 36 DRAFT: March 30, 2007: USDOT/USEPA SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA NATIONAL FREIGHT GATEWAY PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT AMONG FEDERAL, STATE, REGIONAL AND LOCAL AGENCIES Preamble We the undersigned support a cooperative partnership for the Southern California National Freight Gateway that concurrently addresses growing freight throughput capacity balanced with environmental and community concerns in the Southern California National Freight Gateway Area (the Area). The USDOT has promulgated a National Strategy to Reduce Congestion on America’s Transportation Network. The strategy incorporates a focus on major freight bottlenecks, including the Area, and expanding public outreach in the Area with various involved agencies and other public and private interests. This National Strategy incorporates the ideals of the USDOT Framework for a National Freight Policy. The Framework offers a vision and objectives to help public and private transportation stakeholders cooperatively pursue freight transportation improvements that support economic growth while also improving environmental quality. The Challenge Over 40 percent of all goods imported into the U.S. flow through Southern California, the largest port complex in the U.S., with the vast majority of these goods distributed throughout the country. The combination of increasing freight flows, the projected 25 percent population increase by 2030 and inadequate transportation infrastructure funding will intensify the congestion in the region’s already overcrowded transportation system and increase hazards to the environment. Without major actions and assistance from all government levels to protect and enhance the environment, freight movements through the region will increase the already significant impacts on the quality of life in Southern California’s communities and the environment overall. Air quality is of particular concern. Pursuing sustainable and efficient regional freight transportation operations offers significant economic opportunities to the region in the form of additional business, more and better quality jobs, and enhanced local, State and federal tax revenues. Successful transportation improvement efforts in Southern California will require extensive collaboration by a large and diverse group of interested parties including Federal, State and numerous local entities; private industry; unions and the public. Important steps have already been taken at the Federal, state and local levels. Going forward, the outcome to be achieved is the priority connection of freight growth with protection and enhancement of the natural and human environment, to resolve the freight transportation issues facing Southern California. Purpose The purpose of this partnership agreement is to promote cooperation, coordination and collaboration among the signatories in the spirit of Section 101(a) of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and to advance projects for sustainable and efficient freight transportation operations while all signatories pursue their normal responsibilities 37 under the law. This agreement is not intended to limit, increase or affect the authority of any agency under the law. The undersigned agree to a mutual, overarching goal of working with all stakeholders in the Area to improve freight throughput capacity while protecting and enhancing the natural and human environment. Commitments In the spirit of Section 101(a) of NEPA and with the mutual understanding that this is a flexible working agreement among our respective agencies, we commit as follows: • The Partners agree to use this agreement as the basis for a collegial and cooperative alliance to improve sustainable and efficient freight transportation operations in the Area, with a particular focus on air quality improvements; • The Partners agree to use this forum as a means to promote better understanding among all stakeholders of underlying considerations and potential impacts and alternatives for proposed Southern California transportation projects. • The Partners will develop a strategic framework for achieving sustainable and efficient freight transportation operations in the Area in harmony with California’s Goods Movement Action Plan (http://www.arb.ca.gov/gmp/docs/gmap-1-11-07.pdf), including the assurance that all new freight projects meet environmental requirements, with an early focus on air quality issues; • The Partners will consider improvements to the transportation decision-making and environmental review processes to expeditiously advance the objective of the Partnership; • The Partners agree to build upon the existing environmental programs of ports and their tenants in order to work cooperatively to reduce air quality-related freight movement emissions consistent with the Area’s air quality implementation plan; • The parties will establish agreed procedures and protocols in order to carry out the intent of this agreement in an efficient manner; • Within 60 days of the signing of this agreement, senior management representatives of the Partners will meet, and will continue to meet twice a year through the term of this agreement, to discuss emerging problems, issues and priorities for each organization, and to report on the status of the initiatives; • In addition, each Partner will assign a contact person, within their respective organization, who will serve on a Steering Committee that will be responsible for setting the semi-annual meetings, tracking the status of the initiatives, and communicating results to internal and external stakeholders; • The Partners agree to update this agreement periodically based upon accomplishments and new priorities. Miscellaneous The expenditure or advance of any money or the performance of any obligation of the United States under this agreement shall be contingent upon appropriation or allotment of funds in accordance with 31 USC 1341 (Anti-Deficiency Act). Nothing in this Partnership Agreement shall have the effect of changing any existing provision of applicable Federal or State law, regulations, or other agreements between the V:\2007\05 May\Plans & Programs\SW-Committee-Attachment Partnership Agreement.doc 2 38 signatory agencies. All provisions of this Partnership Agreement are intended and shall be interpreted to be consistent with all applicable provisions of Federal and State law. Nothing in this Partnership Agreement limits the discretion of the signatory agencies in carrying out their statutory and regulatory obligations. The term of this agreement shall end on December 31, 2015 unless further extended by the signatories. Any signatory may withdraw from this agreement by giving 90 days prior written notice to the other signatories.

TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: May 9, 2007 TO: Riverside County Transportation Commission FROM: San Jacinto Branch Line Ad Hoc Committee Edda Rosso, Program Manager Dick Bryan, Bechtel Rail Projects Design Manager Stephanie Wiggins, Regional Programs Director THROUGH: Eric Haley, Executive Director SUBJECT: Perris Valley Line - Update on Preliminary Engineering SAN JACINTO BRANCH LINE AD HOC COMMITTEE AND STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the Commission to receive and file an update on the Perris Valley Line (PVL) preliminary engineering contract. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: On April 3rd, the request for proposal (RFP) for preliminary engineering for the PVL project was released. The scope of work includes development of a preliminary estimate and the engineering for the PVL project sufficient to allow a contract for design-bid-build (DBB), design-build (DB), or another fast-track method. The base approach is DBB with the option to pursue the project on a DB basis. Currently, the Commission is not legally empowered to award a project on a DB basis. Action is underway to pass legislation to allow the Commission to issue commuter rail DB contracts.

Agenda Item 8G 43 AGENDA ITEM 8H Agenda Item 8H RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: May 9, 2007 TO: Riverside County Transportation Commission FROM: San Jacinto Branch Line Ad Hoc Committee Stephanie Wiggins, Regional Programs Director THROUGH: Eric Haley, Executive Director SUBJECT: Amendment to Agreement with STV Inc. for Planning Consultant Services on the Perris Valley Line SAN JACINTO BRANCH LINE AD HOC COMMITTEE AND STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the Commission to: 1) Approve Agreement No. 99-33-003-11, Amendment No. 11 to Agreement No. 99-33-003, with STV, Inc. for planning consultant services related to Federal Transit Administration (FTA) coordination, submittal of the FTA Small Starts application for entry to Preliminary Engineering, and completion of the NEPA and CEQA environmental documents for the Perris Valley Line (PVL) project, in the amount of $236,000; and 2) Authorize the Chair, pursuant to legal counsel review, to execute the agreement on behalf of the Commission. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Over the last nine months, STV and its sub-consultant, Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB), have continued to support the PVL project with supplemental activities required as part of the Commission’s submittal of an application to Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for funding and approval to enter preliminary engineering through the New Starts program. These supplemental activities included answering questions on ridership forecasts, cost estimates, performance measurements, alternative optimization, risk analysis and additional New Starts templates. Although included in the current scope of work, the extent of the activities were difficult to budget since they have been subject to additional information requests from the FTA. Since July 2006, these expenses total $108,000 ($35,000 for STV project management oversight and New Starts application submittal and $73,000 for PB (travel demand forecasting). 44 Agenda Item 8H Last week, FTA Region 9 staff met with the Commission over two days to discuss the PVL project. As their examination of the merits of the PVL project has increased, it is an indication that a formal rating from FTA is plausible in the near term. Discussions with FTA staff in Washington, DC and Region 9 indicate that the Commission should re-submit the application as a Small Starts project. Newly enacted in October 2006, the Small Starts is a subset of the New Starts program. Eligible projects are those that total under $250 million and cap the federal Small Starts contribution at $75 million, rather than the New Starts allowance of 50% of the project cost at $96.5 million. Based on the recent Commission action to allocate $22 million of STIP funding to the PVL project, a new funding source is available to replace the additional New Starts funding. Currently estimated at $193 million (year of expenditure), the PVL project is an ideal candidate. The Small Starts program is designed to streamline federal approvals on smaller fixed guideway projects. The budget for the submittal as a Small Starts application is estimated at $85,000 [$35,000 for STV for Small Starts application requirements (i.e. economic benefit analysis) and $50,000 for PB for travel demand forecasting]. In addition, the ridership forecast methodology is nearing completion which enables the finalization of the federal NEPA document, the subsequent circulation and approval of the CEQA environmental documents, and conceptual engineering. The budget for this effort is estimated at $43,000. These activities total an amendment for $236,000, which represents less than 10% of the total contract value of $2.5 million to STV since its initial contract award in 2001 for this project. Since the FY 2006/07 budget includes $100,000 for special studies and at least $66,000 in preliminary engineering, staff proposes a reclassification of $66,000 from preliminary engineering to special studies, resulting in no increase in the current year budget. The amount for FY 2007/08 has been included in the proposed FY 2007/08 Budget.

To date, the IEOC weekend service has provided 38,385 passenger trips since commencing July 15, 2006. This constitutes 19,453 additional trips resulting from year-round service compared to 2005’s 18,932 Summerlink seasonal trips. Growth of the service reflects ongoing marketing efforts coordinated among the Commission, Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) and San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG).

Such services address the needs of transit dependent riders as well as help mitigate congestion and the necessity for expensive parking capacity at our stations. The Commission is working to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of transit connections. In order to meet these requirements, the Commission has worked with Metrolink and local transit operators to offer connecting services to and from Riverside County Metrolink stations at no cost for those with valid Metrolink tickets. Within Riverside County, services include free transfers to routes operated by RTA, RTA’s Commuter Link service and Corona Cruiser. The following graphs show total monthly Metrolink transfer passenger trips on each of the three services.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The Commuter Rail Program is requesting approval to amend its FY 2006/07 SRTP as follows: North Main Corona Parking Structure The North Main Corona Metrolink parking structure was approved in 2002 for $11 million of the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) Interregional Improvement Program (IIP) funds. To date, $1.5 million has been allocated for environmental and design work. The remaining $9.5 million is programmed for construction. The design phase includes the development of plans for three different parking structure configurations (A, B, C). Agenda Item 8J 55 At its September 14, 2006 meeting, the Commission approved building parking structure C at the North Main Corona Station as it yielded the highest number of spaces at 1,443 (1,098 structure + 345 east lot) to meet the demand indicated in the ridership forecast. Future plans for building parking structures A and B will be brought back to the Commission at a later time. The design phase is near completion and construction costs for parking structure C are estimated at $29,591,489. To complete the funding plan for the parking structure the following is requested: 1) Amend the FY 2006/07 SRTP to reflect the allocation of $15 million in CMAQ funding that was approved at the February 14, 2007 Commission meeting. Because ongoing discussions are taking place on whether or not the CMAQ funds should be flex transferred to the FTA Section 5307 program, it is possible that a program of projects will be presented at a later meeting; and 2) Fund the local match requirement of $4,091,489. Staff recommends that $3,523,775 of STA and $567,714 of LTF funds be allocated as the local match. Parking Relocation Strategy Currently, the Commission is developing the following options for a parking relocation strategy to offset the 239 parking spaces that will be lost during the 18- month construction period: 1) Encourage riders to use the Commission subsidized free transit connections provided by the Riverside Transit Agency and Corona Cruiser; 2) Encourage riders to use the West Corona and La Sierra stations, both of which have existing capacity and security; and 3) Pursue local satellite parking lots within a three-mile radius of the North Main Corona Station as a backup to the first two strategies. Commission staff is working closely with the city of Corona to identify potential locations for a satellite facility. To cover the anticipated lease and Corona Cruiser shuttle service costs, staff is requesting an allocation of $180,000 in LTF funds. Agenda Item 8J 56 The following table provides an overview of project costs, by fund type: Project Previously Approved Funding New Funding Requests North Main Corona Parking Structure $1,000,000 FTA Section 5307 $9,500,000 ITIP $15,000,000 - CMAQ $ 3,523,775 - STA $ 567,714 – LTF Parking Relocation $ 180,000 – LTF Subtotals $10,500,000 $19,271,489 Overall Project Funding $29,771,489 ($29,591,489/construction; $180,000/parking) Staff recommends approval of this request as there are adequate STA and LTF funds available in the Commuter Rail apportionment.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: RTA is requesting a FY 2006/07 SRTP amendment as follows: 1) Section 5310 Program In 2006, RTA was approved to purchase seven medium-sized vehicles through the FTA’s Section 5310 program at a total cost of $410,000 ($362,970 in federal funds and $47,030 in local funding). The Section 5310 program provides capital grants for the purpose of assisting private nonprofit corporations and public agencies in Agenda Item 8K 58 providing transportation services to meet the needs of seniors and persons with disabilities for whom public transportation services are otherwise unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate. RTA is requesting an allocation of $47,030 to serve as the local match to the federal funding; there are adequate STA funds available in Western Riverside County to meet this request. If approved, RTA anticipates ordering the vehicles in April with delivery by the end of July 2007. 2) Section 5311(f) Program RTA was approved to receive $31,595 of FTA Section 5311(f) funds for the purchase and installation of two bus shelters at bus stops along Route 22 in the Meadowbrook area of Western Riverside County. Since grant award, RTA has subsequently learned that the actual cost for the bus shelters will be $13,450 ($10,760 in Section 5311(f) funds and $2,690 is required as the local match). The remaining Section 5311(f) funds of $20,835 ($31,595 - $10,760) will be returned to the FTA program. RTA is requesting an allocation of $2,690 to serve as the local match. There are adequate STA funds available in Western Riverside County to meet this request. 3) Bus Rapid Transit Study and CNG Fueling Station RTA is requesting that $25,672 of STA funds (allocated in 2002) for the Bus Rapid Transit study be reprogrammed to cover operating costs for the CNG fueling facility located at the agency’s Third Street facility in Riverside. 4) Route 16: Box Springs Road Bridge Service It was necessary to close the Box Springs/Fair Isle Drive overpass in order for a new bridge to be constructed in the vicinity of SR-60 and I-215. The closure and subsequent construction resulted in disruption of RTA’s Route 16 service from Moreno Valley to Riverside. RTA estimates that approximately 200 on/off boardings occur on a daily basis along the segment affected by the closure/construction. RTA staff determined that the optimal way to minimize the loss of ridership on Route 16 would be to provide shuttle service at an approximate cost of $5,000 per week for a total approximate cost of $60,000. Staff is requesting that $60,000 in LTF funds be allocated to RTA to cover the cost of the shuttle service; there are adequate Western Riverside County LTF funds available to support this funding request. Agenda Item 8K 59 5) UPass/Crest Cruiser: University of California, Riverside (UCR) Through a contract with UCR, RTA operates Route 51, the Crest Cruiser, as a demonstration program to encourage students to ride public transit. Ridership on the Crest Cruiser is increasing and as a result, UCR is requesting that the service be extended to Spruce Street. According to RTA’s staff report, since implementation on September 25, 2006, the passengers per revenue hour is approximately 10, which is greater than that of 18 other RTA fixed routes. The passengers per revenue mile is 0.88, which is greater than that of 28 other RTA fixed routes. The proposed service extension will add 11.8 daily revenue hours at a cost of $49.90 per hour for a total cost of $20,000 that will be paid for by UCR. Commission staff is requesting that RTA’s FY 2006/07 SRTP be amended to reflect the additional service level as well as the increased revenue. 6) Riverside Transit Center at 4085 Vine Street: $2.5 Million in TUMF Funds RTA has identified 4085 Vine Street as the site for the Riverside Transit Center. The location is adjacent to the west side of Vine Street between 14th Street and University Avenue. Due to improvements on the SR-91, additional land is needed to accommodate the footprint of the proposed transit center. The cost of the additional property is estimated at $2.5 million. Currently, the city of Riverside (City) is in negotiations with the landowners to purchase the required property. In addition, the City has committed to help RTA with the cost of improving the property to complete the design and construction of the facility. Once built, the site will be served by dial-a-ride and 16 bus lines providing convenient connections to Metrolink within the downtown area. Parking, services, eating establishments and educational facilities are within walking distance of the transit center. RTA received an additional TUMF allocation from the Western Riverside Council of Governments to cover the additional costs of the proposed transit center. Commission staff is seeking approval to amend the proposed Program of Projects to reflect the additional funding as well as to update the project in the RTIP.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: SunLine was recently notified by Caltrans that it was approved to receive funding under FTA’s Section 5310 grant program. The award amount is for a total of $62,000 for the procurement of the following capital equipment: 1) Medium bus (replacement) $56,000 2) Mobile radio $ 1,500 3) Computer equipment and software $ 4,500 Total Cost: $62,000 The Section 5310 program 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. SunLine is requesting an allocation of $12,400 to serve as the local match to the federal funding. There are adequate STA funds available in the Coachella Valley apportionment area to meet this request. SunLine expects to order the equipment by September 30, 2007 and anticipates delivery by September 2008. If approved, staff is requesting that SunLine’s FY 2006/07 SRTP be amended to reflect the additional capital equipment and associated funding. Agenda Item 8L 62 Financial Information In Fiscal Year Budget: No Year:FY 2006/07 Amount: $12,400 Source of Funds: State Transit Assistance Fund Budget Adjustment: Yes GLA No.: 241 62 86102 - P2202 Fiscal Procedures Approved: Date: 3/16/07 Agenda Item 8L 63 AGENDA ITEM 8M RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: May 9, 2007 TO: Riverside County Transportation Commission FROM: Plans and Programs Committee Tanya Love, Program Manager THROUGH: Eric Haley, Executive Director SUBJECT: Fiscal Year 2006/07 Short Range Transit Plan Amendment: City of Riverside Special Services PLANS AND PROGRAMS COMMITTEE AND STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the Commission to: 1) Allocate $230,000 in State Transit Assistance (STA) funds to the city of Riverside’s Special Services (RSS) program contingent upon approval by the Riverside City Council; and 2) Amend RSS’ FY 2006/07 Short Range Transit Plan (SRTP) to reflect the additional funding. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: In FY 2005/06, RSS was approved to purchase six replacement Dial-A-Ride vehicles at an estimated cost of $450,000. City staff has subsequently determined that the actual cost of the vehicles is $570,000 ($120,000 over the original cost estimate). This fiscal year, RSS was approved to purchase mobile data computer and vehicle tracking system locator equipment for the vehicles at an estimated cost of $150,000; however, the actual cost of the equipment is $260,000 ($110,000 over original estimate). As a result, RSS is requesting an allocation of $230,000 in STA funds to cover the additional costs of the vehicles and associated equipment. RSS plans to formally present its request for additional funds at the April 24, 2007 Riverside City Council meeting. In recognition of this, the recommendation for additional funds is contingent upon approval by the Riverside City Council. In addition, due to the May holiday; there will not be a Plans and Programs Committee (PPC). RSS has an urgent need for the replacement vehicles because of high maintenance costs on the existing vehicles. As a result, the recommendation is presented today rather than deferring it to the next scheduled PPC meeting in June. Commission staff is in support of RSS’ request for additional funding in the amount of $230,000 and requests an amendment to its FY 2006/07 SRTP.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Staff is requesting the appointment of Fortunato Penilla as a new member to the Commission’s CAC/SSTAC. Mr. Penilla is retired from Inland Regional Center where he served as the Transportation Coordinator. For the past few years, he has actively attended CAC/SSTAC meetings providing assistance with various work efforts including the annual review of the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Section 5310 program. As shown on the attached roster, there are currently nine CAC/SSTAC members. Initial appointments to the CAC/SSTAC are staggered with members appointed to one, two and three-year terms. Once initial appointments are made, a subsequent renewal can be made for a three-year term. Because several of the existing CAC/SSTAC members have been on the committee for over six years, staff is seeking recommendations from the Commissioners for potential members. Members of the Social Services Transportation Advisory Council shall be appointed by the Transportation Planning Agency (TPA). Candidates shall be recruited from a broad representation of social service and transit providers representing the elderly, the handicapped, and persons of limited means. Agenda Item 8N 66 The Commission is the TPA for Riverside County. In appointing council members, the TPA shall strive to attain geographic and minority representation among council members. Transportation Development Act Requirements Related to CAC/SSTAC The Transportation Development Act (TDA) provides direction for administering both Local Transportation Fund (LTF) and State Transit Assistance (STA) funds. Both fund types are used to support operating and capital costs for public transportation. Section 99238 of the TDA requires that the Commission have a CAC/SSTAC consisting of categorical memberships as follows: 1) One representative of a potential transit user who is 60 years of age or older; 2) One representative of a potential transit user who is handicapped; 3) Two representatives of the local social service providers for seniors, including one representative of a social service transportation provider, if one exists; 4) Two representatives of local social service providers for the handicapped, including one representative of a social service transportation provider, if one exists; 5) One representative of a local social service provider for persons of limited means; 6) Two representatives from the local consolidated transportation service agency, designated pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 15975 of the Government Code, if one exists, including one representative from an operator, if one exists; 7) The Transportation Planning Agency may appoint additional members. For the past several years, staff has requested CAC/SSTAC’s participation in reviewing Transit Operators’ Short Range Transit Plans, the testimony of the Commission’s Unmet Transit Needs Hearing, the SB 821 Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Program and the Section 5310 program. In addition, for FY 2007/08, at least one member of the CAC/SSTAC will serve on the Technical Advisory Committee assisting with the development of the Coordinated Plan for Public Transit-Human Services as part of the SAFETEA-LU requirements.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: At its May 10, 2006 meeting, the Commission approved and directed staff to release a request for proposals (RFP) for on-call goodwill valuation services to support current Commission projects and future Measure A highway and rail projects. State statues and regulations require that when business operations are affected by agency projects, an assessment of probable loss of goodwill be conducted by the agency. In order to comply with state requirements, the Commission can either hire staff or establish a list of on-call professionals who specialize in valuing goodwill. The Commission decided to establish a list of on-call goodwill valuation experts.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: At its May 10, 2006 meeting, the Commission approved and directed staff to release a request for proposals (RFP) for on-call title and escrow services to support current Commission projects and future Measure A highway and rail projects. Title companies will provide preliminary title reports on all property and property interests to be acquired by the Commission. Preliminary title reports provide the necessary information to ensure that the Commission is acquiring clear title to properties being purchased. Legal owners of the property, liens and encumbrances, as well as existence of utility easements are some of the information contained in those reports. Escrow services are necessary to ensure compliance with all conditions of the purchase and sale agreement. 71 Calendar of Events Distribution of RFP March 6, 2007 Proposals were delivered to Commission prior to 2 p.m. April 6, 2007 Evaluation committee review of proposals April 10, 2007 Staff recommendation to Commission May 9, 2007 Selection Process A selection panel was assembled, which consisted of representatives from the Commission and Caltrans.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Commission Sponsored Legislation Update – AB 1295 During the current session, the Commission is sponsoring two bills as part of its highway delivery plan and implementation of the Perris Valley Line (PVL) project. AB 1295 (Spitzer) would provide the Commission the legislative authorization to pursue publicly-owned toll facilities on State Route 91 and Interstate 15. AB 1240 (Benoit) would allow the Commission to use design-build contract procurement in delivering the PVL project. AB 1295 was first introduced in “spot” form, which means that the first draft of the bill provides only scant information and detail with the intent to amend the bill at a future time. This was necessary with this bill because any attempt to pursue the development of a toll facility requires cooperation and assistance from the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) due to its ownership of the 91 Express Lanes and the existence of a franchise from the state of California that provides the owner of the 91 Express Lanes with tolling rights all the way to I-15. During the last few weeks, Commission staff has been working with OCTA to craft language that will be acceptable to OCTA while providing the Commission with the authorization it needs to complete its Western Riverside County 10-Year Delivery Agenda Item 9 75 Plan that was approved in December 2006. Commissioners John Tavaglione and Jeff Miller have also been working with OCTA Board members as part of an ad hoc committee appointed by the Riverside County-Orange County Toll Road Advisory Committee that was created by Assembly Bill 1010 in 2002. Key issues for OCTA were to protect its current franchise rights by allowing the OCTA Board to either transfer or terminate its rights in Riverside County, the need to ensure that the Commission’s toll plans are similar to OCTA’s current operations, and the elimination of a current provision in state law that prevents toll revenue from the 91 Express Lanes from being used on another toll facility. The latter point was especially important because OCTA is interested in developing a direct connector that would ease transitions from the SR-241 Toll Road and SR-91. Language has now been developed to meet both agencies needs and was approved by the OCTA Board during its meeting on April 23, 2007. In addition to OCTA’s full board meeting, April 23rd also marked the date of AB 1295’s first committee hearing in Sacramento. The bill was unanimously approved by the Assembly Transportation Committee and Commissioner John Tavaglione testified on behalf of the bill along with Deputy Executive Director Anne Mayer. Unfortunately, prior to the vote, it was made clear that the Commission would be forced to accept amendments to the bill that were intended to provide the Commission with full flexibility on contracting methods. Specifically, the authorization to use design-build contracting received vociferous opposition from Professional Engineers in California Government (PECG). Faced with the prospect of either losing the entire bill or accepting the amendment, a decision was made to move forward with the amendment and the bill was approved with an 11-0 vote. Having flexibility for contracting and the authorization for design-build remains an important priority for the Commission and additional legal reviews will be done to determine a future course of action. Nevertheless, receiving unanimous approval from the Assembly Transportation Committee for the tolling authority is a promising step. The next stop for the bill is the Assembly Appropriations Committee. Toll Road Outreach The eventual development of high occupancy toll lanes will require a sustained and comprehensive outreach and education effort with the public and various stakeholders. The effort would start in the earnest with the commencement of the environmental approval process, but in recent weeks, the Commission has been approached with a promising opportunity for a head start in providing information. Agenda Item 9 76 KOCE (PBS) Television in Orange County is seeking to produce a one-hour public affairs program to examine the future of SR-91 between Orange and Riverside Counties. The purpose of the show would be to take a look at what is planned in the long-term for the corridor, which would include the Commission’s Delivery Plan, the findings of the joint Major Investment Study completed by the Commission and OCTA and projects that would be funded by Measure M in Orange County. The hurdle in working with KOCE is that it is carried on only a handful of cable systems in Riverside County and can be received over the air in a few western cities. In a bid to elicit additional cooperation, KOCE contacted KVCR, which is the PBS station in San Bernardino County and that is widely carried throughout the area. KVCR has committed to simulcasting the show and repeating it a number of times. All told, the production costs for the show are estimated at $52,000 and KOCE is seeking the Commission to contribute $20,000. OCTA would contribute the remainder of $32,000 since the show originates in Orange County and because OCTA has an ongoing sponsorship relationship with the station. KOCE and KVCR are both public broadcasting stations that rely on sponsorships and underwriting to produce their programming. In return for providing funding, the Commission would be a full participant in an hour-long program that would air live with a studio audience and the ability for viewers to submit questions via e-mail. The show would receive substantial promotion for a number of weeks before the program and would rerun at least four times after its initial airing. Currently, a date of June 28th has been suggested with reruns taking place after the Independence Day holiday. The Commission would also receive copies of the show that could be distributed to interested audiences and used as an outreach tool. Staff is requesting $22,000 to participate in the production of the show and to produce additional taped and DVD copies of the program. Overall, it is a modest test of television outreach in an area that often must fight for this kind of coverage and will help staff evaluate future opportunities and outreach methods. Commission Sponsored Legislation Update – AB 1240 AB 1240 is scheduled to be heard by the Assembly Transportation Committee on May 7th. The wording of this bill has been set from the beginning, which has allowed a number of organizations to take formal support positions on the bill including the cities of Moreno Valley; Riverside, Corona and Southwest Chambers of Commerce; Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA); and the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). Agenda Item 9 77 Court Decision Helpful to Private Engineering Firms The California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 35, an initiative approved in 2000 that specifically allows contracting out with the private sector for engineering and architectural expertise on state infrastructure projects. The Court’s decision was unanimous and rejected a suit brought by PECG. While this case was in court, PECG sponsored AB 1337 by Assembly Transportation Committee Chairman Pedro Nava. The original version of the bill would have required Caltrans employees to be the sole workers on all state highway engineering and construction management. The bill was amended to apply only to inspections and ultimately withdrawn by its author. In any case, PECG continues to play an active role in legislative issues and will steadfastly oppose the use of design-build contracting in most instances, even in areas such as Commuter Rail where Caltrans has limited or non-existent role. Container Fee Bill Introduced Senator Alan Lowenthal of Long Beach has once again introduced legislation, SB 974, to assess a $60 fee on containers traveling through the Ports of Long Beach, Los Angeles and Oakland. The revenue from the fees would be divided in half with 50 percent being used to improve port and goods movement infrastructure and the remainder being used for projects to mitigate the impact of goods movement. The bill specifically calls out grade separations in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties as appropriate projects for the use of the mitigation part of the program. Also, revenue collected from the Southern California ports would be used exclusively in Southern California and revenue collected in Oakland would be used in Northern California. The actual allocations would come under the purview of the California Transportation Commission. The bill calls for implementation in 2009, which leads credence to the idea that the final disposition of this bill might not take place until 2008. There are a number of issues that would need to be resolved before this bill could be passed or to take effect. One key question would pertain to the legality of the bill and whether the state of California can impose this kind of fee on an interstate or international enterprise. Moreover, there will be questions on who would pay the fee; while the bill directs the ports to assess the fee, is it paid by the retailers, shippers or another party? Also, would this revenue be considered for the source of private matching dollars that are required in Proposition 1B for freight-related projects? Agenda Item 9 78 During its next meeting, the Commission’s Ad Hoc Grade Separations Committee will be considering funding issues for grade separation projects. One item that will be on the next agenda is Commissioner Steve Adams proposal for a program of voluntary premiums on container cargo that would be used to pay for goods movement-related infrastructure. This would be administered much differently than the legally-mandated tax/fee program that is outlined in SB 974. Staff believes that the ad hoc committee should have the opportunity to consider these approaches and will return with recommendations based on that input along with an update on future developments. Federal Update Commission staff has been working cooperatively with two business organizations that will be traveling to Washington soon to meet with representatives on Riverside County infrastructure needs. Both the Monday Morning Group and the Valley Group have invited the Commission to make presentations to their organizations on federal issues and for assistance in preparing transportation-related materials and issue papers. The Valley Group will be visiting Washington during the first week of May with the Monday Morning Group traveling the following week.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: This presentation represents the second in a series of regular updates on Regional Programs that will be presented to the Plans and Programs Committee. Regional Programs include Specialized Transit, Transit, Commuter Assistance, Commuter Rail, Freeway Service Patrol and Goods Movement. The Commission has long demonstrated a strong commitment to assist in the mobility of those with specialized transit needs over and above what is provided by Dial-A-Ride services. Through its Specialized Transit Program, the Commission has provided millions of dollars to public and non-profit operators for the provision of specialized transit services to improve the mobility of seniors and persons with disabilities. The riders, many frail and elderly, have come to depend on these services that provide a higher level of assistance than can be provided by the public transit providers and/or operate in areas not served by public transit.
