Advancing the mobility ecosystem.
The California integrated Travel Project (Cal-ITP) is an initiative led by CalSTA and its public transportation partners dedicated to state goals of increasing ridership, reaching environmental targets, lowering costs, creating efficiencies, improving customer experience and promoting equity throughout our current transportation network.
In the near term, Cal-ITP will enable accomplishment of these goals by creating opportunities for integration specifically focused on:
Improving efficiencies that lower costs and barriers to trip planning and payment for transit, regional and interregional journeys, and beyond.
Enhancing the customer experience for accurate and convenient trip planning and payment.
Cal-ITP phases 1 and 2 encompassed extensive research in 2017-2018 including project reports and convening a California Integrated Travel Conference of domestic stakeholders and International experts held in May 2018. Subsequently, Cal-ITP received $28 million in TIRCP funding and has commenced phase 3 of the project. Phase 3 business actions have included awarding a project management contract, defining the Cal-ITP overarching mission, and launching initial work by a highly qualified consultant team in specific areas of expertise related to transit data and payments.
Presently, Cal-ITP efforts are concentrated on incentivizing statewide trip planning and fare payment standards and other integrated travel improvements over time.
Cal-ITP seeks opportunities to drive down transportation costs for travelers and transit agencies alike to:
Reduce costs to transit agencies by providing an alternative to expensive and outdated fare collection systems.
Reduce fees through simplification, economies of scale, and the adoption of global standards and practices.
The following documents were issued by the Cal-ITP Steering Committee in September 2018 at the conclusion of Phase 2.
