Office of Federal Programs Overview

The Division of Rail and Mass Transportation (DRMT) is the designated recipient of four Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funding programs. The Office of Federal Transit Programs administers these programs which provide a safe, sustainable, integrated and efficient transportation system to enhance California’s economy and livability through transit services.

The programs are the Section 5307 Small Urban Area Formula Program, the Section 5310 Elderly Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities Program, the Section 5311 Non-urbanized Area Formula Program which encompasses the Section 5311(f) Rural and Intercity Bus Program, and the Section 5339 Rural and Small Urban Bus and Bus Facilities Program.

Capital asset procurement and FTA compliance oversight for all of these programs are provided for through this Office of Federal Transit Grants. This Office develops and utilizes a State Management Plan (SMP) to provide essential information for the understanding and implementation of each program.

Training, technical assistance and other support services that are needed by rural and small urban transit systems are also provided through this Office via the Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP).
