STIF Program

In 2017 the Oregon Legislature established the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (STIF) to expand public transportation services throughout Oregon.  STIF Formula Funds are distributed to Qualified Entities (QE) based on taxes paid within their respective boundaries.

Tillamook County Transportation District (TCTD) is the designated QE for Tillamook County and has the responsibility of working with a local STIF Advisory Committee to determine how best to use STIF Formula Funds.   STIF monies may be used for public transportation purposes that include planning, operations, bus purchases and administration of the STIF Program.

The STIF advisory committee is required to consist of at least 5 members who represent the diverse interests of the District’s geographic service area.  The STIF Advisory Committee’s primary role is to review proposed projects and rank them in the order of priority and make recommendations to the TCTD Board of Directors.  Below are the District’s STIF Advisory Committee Members.
