Lifeline Transportation Program | Fund + Invest | Our Work

Lifeline Transportation Program

MTC’s Lifeline Transportation Program is part of our commitment to ensuring mobility options for all Bay Area residents.

We tap both state and federal funds to provide Lifeline grants for projects that meet mobility and accessibility needs in low-income communities across the Bay Area.

MTC establishes new guidelines for each cycle of Lifeline grants. But the goal is the same: fund community-based transportation projects developed through a collaborative and inclusive process.

Lifeline projects must address transportation gaps or barriers identified in community-based transportation plans or other local planning efforts in low-income neighborhoods
