Unmet Transit Needs
In order for Merced County to be eligible for Transportation Development Act funds, MCAG is required to identify the unmet transit needs of the county by soliciting the comments of transit dependent or disadvantaged persons. An Unmet Transit Needs (UTN) assessment is required to ensure that all unmet transit needs that are "reasonable to meet" are met before funds are expended for non-transit uses, such as streets and roads.
