Proposed Amendments to STA Moving Forward Plan (2024)

The STA Moving Forward plan, a ten-year public transit project, was first established in December 2014 and has been updated over time, including before votes in November 2016 and November 2020. These updates recognize that adjustments to the plan are necessary as it progresses.

In 2024, we are announcing another proposed modification to the plan.
