    • Hi Adam,

      TDA stands for Transportation Development Act, which provides two major sources of funding for public transportation: the Local Transportation Fund (LTF) and the State Transit Assistance fund (STA). These funds are for the development and support of public transportation needs that exist in California and are allocated to areas of each county based on population, taxable sales and transit performance. You can peruse the handbook here.

      Thank you,
