Transportation Development Act (TDA)
The Transportation Development Act (TDA) is one of the major funding sources for public transit in California. The TDA provides two funding sources:
The STA is derived from sales tax on gasoline and diesel fuel. Fifty percent of STA funds are allocated according to population. The other fifty percent is allocated according to the ratio of the total public transit revenues that were generated in each area during the prior fiscal year.
The TDA "Statutes and California Code of Regulations" can be found by clicking on this link where you will be directed to the Caltrans Homepage. All TDA Claims must comply with these regulations.
