2020 – Assembly Bill 2012 (Chu, Kansen), Free Senior Transit Passes (Dead)
Office of Legislative Affairs
Would have required transit agencies to offer free senior transit passes to persons over 65 years of age in order to be eligible for state funding under the Mills-Deddeh Transit Development Act, the State Transit Assistance Program, and the Low Carbon Transit Operations Program (LCTOP). This bill would have also required the free senior transit passes to count as full-price fares for purposes of calculating the ratio of fare revenues to operating costs. LCTOP receives a continuous appropriation from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund. Was not heard in the Assembly Transportation Committee.
