Memo from City Manager to City Council regarding funding for transit plan for Alameda Point, March 2, 2010
On behalf of the City of Alameda , the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District
(BART) applied for and received four grants from the Federal Transit Administration
(FTA) totaling $1,668,154 for the planning and implementation of transit service that
would link Alameda Point and the adjacent community centers to the Oakland BART
stations. Since the City is not an eligible recipient of FTA funds, BART is acting as a
pass-through agent for the grants; the City is a subgrantee and will serve as the project manager. The first phase of the project is for planning and preliminary design, and will utilize $380,714 of the grant funds.
