Cycle 1 Results

The inaugural Safe Routes to BART (SR2B) grant program Cycle 1 for FY 2020/2021 has been a resounding success so far! BART received ten applications from public agencies representing the geographical diversity encompassed by the eligible counties of Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco.

A Selection Committee consisting of BART staff and representatives from Walk SF, TransForm and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) reviewed and selected four projects to receive SR2B funding (presented in the table below).
