      supportive land uses

     Transit Expansion Needed to
     Meet Regional Population and
     Job Growth Projections
 MTC adopted TOD policy in July 2005
 MTC also committed $2.5 million to
  support partners in station area planning

Revenues Can’t Keep Pace With Demand
    Increases in transit ridership and traffic congestion will put
     significant strains on traditional funding stream
    In real terms, revenue from fuel taxes is inadequate even to
     maintain the existing system
    Equivalent impact with federal gas tax
Local Revenues Help Tremendously
        There are a number of voter initiatives and fee structures that can
         be applied to the funding shortfall
        One of the most promising new revenue sources is the use of high
         occupancy toll lanes that offer both “congestion insurance” and
         new financing opportunities for major projects
