Dear Colleague's and Consortium Members:

It is with great pleasure that I present to you a report on the accomplishments of the Southern California Regional Transit Consortium (SCRTTC) for the Fiscal Year 2010/2011 ending June 30, 2011.

This past year was another outstanding year for the SCRTTC. There were several key accomplishments worth noting:

  • A new grant from the Federal Transit Administration was received for a total amount of $450,000 that covers a 12-month operating period ending December 31, 2011.
  • The American Public Transportation Association accepted an invitation to join the Board, with the addition of Pam Boswell as its representative.
  • The past year has seen new members joining the SCRTTC from the California State University at Long Beach (CSULB), the University of California San Diego (UCSD), and Gold Coast Transit, Oxnard, CA.
  • In October, the "Private Industry/Public Agency Partnership Program" saw success with the addition of ATech Training Inc. as a "Founding Partner" and Clean Energy Inc. as a "Sustaining partner."
  • In March, the SCRTTC was awarded $675,675.00 in grant funds from the "Reformulated Gasoline Settlement Fund." The award covers a 3-year period of performance.
  • In May, it was announced that the consortium will receive a 3-year commitment from the "Bus Operations Subcommittee" (BOS) Funds" for $200,000 per year.
  • In June, the Board adopted the Consortium's new structure of committees and divisions, in line with better communications and participation from all members.

As you can see from above it has been a very productive year for the consortium thanks to the active participation of our Board Members and staff.

Moving forward, we will continue to expand our training programs to develop courses and programs that focus on Green Technologies, and Intelligent Transportation Technologies. Consistent with the development of these training courses we will also expand our distanced education training delivery capabilities and systems, including such things as social networking and digital delivery techniques.

We continue to operate within our budget with no deficits or financial issues. The FY 2011 budget was adopted, and a succession plan was adopted at the Board Workshop in May. The state of the SCRTTC is sound with future organizational and strategic plans in place.
