CARTS District Receives Funding from TxDOT for San Marcos
San Marcos, Texas – December 31, 2013: On December 19, 2013 the Texas Transportation Commission awarded the CARTS District $250,000 for its San Marcos transit operations. This award was made pursuant to a competitive call for applications from transit agencies affected by the impact of the 2010 census. In the CARTS District the 2010 census created an urbanized area in San Marcos in which CARTS rural state funding sources could not be used to match federal funding, creating a larger local share requirement to the city. The award will lessen that impact over the next two fiscal years as the state funding from TxDOT will be used as matching funds for federal grants.
