Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund

Background

Section 122 of Keep Oregon Moving (Oregon House Bill 2017), which goes into effect on October 6, 2017, establishes a new dedicated source of funding for expanding public transportation service in Oregon. This new funding source is called the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund, or STIF.

The STIF Rules Advisory Committee will advise the Oregon Transportation Commission on implementing the STIF. The STIF Rules Advisory Committee’s work should be completed in time for the first formula grant agreements to be effective January 1, 2019 and the first competitive grant program agreements to be effective July 1, 2019.

About the STIF's Components

Infomation about the components of the STIF will be shared here as it becomes available.

Ninety percent of the STIF will be distributed by formula to qualified entities.

Five percent of the STIF will be distributed through a competitive grant program to public transportation service providers.

Four percent of the STIF will be distributed through a competitive grant program to public transportation service providers to improve public transportation between two or more communities.

​One percent of the STIF will establish a statewide public transportation technical resource center to assist public transportation providers in rural areas with training, planning, and information technology.
