C. APPROVAL OF MINUTES: Planning Committee Minutes of April 4, 2012. (Attachment - Action [PDF-200 KB])CONSENT CALENDAR
1.0 Approval of Amendment No. 1 to Cooperative Agreement 18.CO.01 between Sonoma County Transportation Authority (SCTA), CCTA, and the Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) to Conduct a Real-Time Ridesharing Pilot Program. This amendment reduces the local matching requirement for federal funds applied to this project. Initially, the local match was set at 11.47 percent for the preliminary engineering portion of the work. As the project transitions to deployment, the local match requirement is reduced to zero-percent. The proposed amendment reflects the elimination of a local matching requirement along with other minor "clean up" modifications to align the scope of work with the deployment phase.
