Plumas County Transportation Commission Overview
The Plumas County Transportation Commission (PCTC) is one of 43 Rural Transportation Planning Agencies (RTPA) in California, created pursuant to Section 29532 of the California Government Code. The principal purpose of RTPAs in rural areas is to:
• Prepare and adopt planning and programming documents required by law, and
• Allocate funds and administer various funding programs that involve cities, counties, and transit operators.
Specific to its role, PCTC was created pursuant to Title 3, Division 3, Chapter 2 of California
Government Code Section 29535. The mission of PCTC is to prepare, plan, and fund transportation programs for the citizens of Plumas County. As a Local Transportation Commission serving a rural area, PCTC is limited to dealing only with transportation planning issues. It is responsible for the planning and programming of transportation-related funding and projects including the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) required by state and federal law. In addition, PCTC guides the following:
• Approval of the allocation of and claims for Transportation Development Act funds.
• Provision for the distribution and oversight of Local Transportation Fund (LTF) monies.
• Preparation and submission of applications for transportation-related funds.
• Preparation of the annual Overall Work Program (OWP) and OWP progress reports.

• Encouragement of active citizen participation in the development and implementation of various transportation-related plans and programs.
