Section 122 of Keep Oregon Moving (Oregon House Bill 2017) established a new dedicated source of funding for expanding public transportation service in Oregon. This new funding source is called the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund, or STIF. The Oregon Transportation Commission adopted the Oregon Administrative Rules to implement the STIF on June 22 and the rules became effective on July 1, 2018.
“STIF” - Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund - statewide fund established by HB2017 to receive and distribute the new public transit employee tax revenues, and may also receive other funds from the Legislature in the future.
“Qualified Entity” - Mass Transit District, Transportation District, County Government, or Federally-recognized Indian Tribe which will receive funds from the STIF.
“Public Transportation Provider” - a Qualified Entity, city, county, special district, intergovernmental entity or other public entity that provides public transportation services (not a non-profit)
“Advisory Committee” - committee appointed by the Qualified Entity governing body (BOC) to advise and assist them in reviewing the STIF Plan, prioritizing projects, and recommending funding.
“STIF Plan” - means the local plan required by HB2017 which has been reviewed by an Advisory Committee and adopted by the local governing body.
