San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) oversees the disbursement of 2% of the Local Transportation Funds (LTF) made available to counties and cities for facilities geared toward the exclusive use of pedestrians and bicyclists, known as the Transportation Development Act (TDA) Article 3 Program. In August 1999, the SBCTA Board of Directors approved a policy stipulating that 80% would be available for pedestrian and bicycle projects and 20% would be available for projects that improve access to transit stops for pedestrians and persons with disabilities. In 2015, the Board approved the use of up to 10% of the funds available for pedestrian and bicycle projects for maintenance of existing bicycle and pedestrian facilities. In 2017, the Board further approved a policy to set-aside a minimum of 50% of the remaining bicycle and pedestrian facilities project funding for smaller projects under $250,000. Eligible applicants include local jurisdictions, the County, and transit operators within the San Bernardino County area.
