Program Overview

The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, Senate Bill (SB) 1 (Chapter 5, Statues of 2017), signed by the Governor on April 28, 2017, includes a program that will provide additional revenues for transit infrastructure repair and service improvements. This investment in public transit will be referred to as the State of Good Repair program. This program provides funding of approximately $105 million annually to the State Transit Assistance (STA) Account. These funds are to be made available for eligible transit maintenance, rehabilitation and capital projects.

SB 1 emphasizes the importance of accountability and transparency in the delivery of California’s transportation programs. Therefore, in order to be eligible for State of Good Repair funding, potential agencies must comply with various reporting requirements. The State of Good Repair Guidelines will describe the general policies and procedures in carrying out the reporting requirements and other statutory objectives of the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.


Caltrans will be holding two public workshops to discuss the formal draft guidelines of the new State Transit Assistance, State of Good Repair Program. This is an opportunity for potential recipients and other stakeholders to learn more about the program process, requirements, and timelines while being able to provide input on the draft guidelines.
