“We would like to thank the Legislature and the Governor’s office for continuing to fund important transformational transportation projects in California. The TIRCP investment in Valley Rail brings much needed funding to the San Joaquin Valley where residents need multi-modal travel options. The local communities are excited to be connected to the statewide rail network and have access to a variety of economic opportunities,” says Stacey Mortensen, Executive Director of the San Joaquin Regional Rail Commission and San Joaquins Joint Powers Authority.
The Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program (TIRCP) was created by Senate Bill (SB) 862 to provide grants from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) to fund transformative capital improvements that will modernize California’s intercity, commuter, and urban rail systems, and bus and ferry transit systems, to significantly reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, vehicle miles traveled, and congestion.
Governed by a Board of Directors consisting of six full-voting members from San Joaquin County and two special-voting members from Alameda County, SJRRC owns, operates and is the policy-making body for the Altamont Corridor Express (ACE) service, which has been transporting passengers between the Central Valley and Bay Area since 1998.
