SB 1119 seeks to alter the thresholds for transit agencies' requirements for their LCTOP funds to be considered as benefiting disadvantaged communities. In particular, the bill would allow "technology improvements", such as zero or near-zero emission buses as qualifying, regardless of their location, as well as fare reductions and certain transit connections.
