Special Transportation Fund

Special Transportation Fund (STF):

The STF Program provides a flexible, coordinated, reliable and continuing source of revenue in support of transportation services for people who are senior and people with disabilities of any age. The Oregon Legislature intended that STF funds be used to provide transportation services needed to access health, education, work, and social/recreational opportunities so that seniors and people with disabilities may live as independently and productively as possible. The funds may be used for any purpose directly related to transportation services, including transit operations, capital equipment, planning, travel training and other transit-related purposes.

COIC signed an IGA with Jefferson and Crook Counties to help administer their STF programs. Deschutes County and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs currently administer their own STF programs.
