Sacramento Streetcar Project Awarded $30 million from Transit Intercity Rail Capital Program
Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (CA-06) issued the following statement on the announcement that the Downtown Riverfront Sacramento Streetcar project has been awarded $30 million in funding from the State of California’s Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program (TIRCP):  
“For more than 70 years, Sacramento’s streetcar system connected residents, visitors, and the region’s workforce. Today’s announcement adds to our momentum as we revitalize that history and bring streetcars back to Sacramento. The Downtown Riverfront Streetcar project will work with our existing public transit systems by linking residents to their final destinations, while helping our environment.  Along with the commitment made by the Federal Transportation Administration, the award brings us closer to making our vision of streetcars in Sacramento a reality.”
