The MSRC Helps the City of Corona Invest in New Bike and Electric Vehicle Infrastructure
October 14, 2016
The City of Corona is putting the finishing touches on new infrastructure and facilities to encourage more residents to bike in the city. With the help of more than $178,000 in Clean Transportation Funding from the MSRC, the city has installed 20 bicycle lockers and 43 bike racks at parks and government buildings around the city. Bike lockers (see photo below) can provide more security for bicycles, can provide a longer term parking option, and can help shield them from the elements. The final installations should be completed by the end of October.
As part of this MSRC grant, Corona also will be installing electric vehicle charging stations at two sites within the city – the Corona Pointe Center and Dos Lagos Shopping Center. These stations will include three Fast Chargers, capable of providing nearly a full charge in 30 minutes, and six Level 2 chargers, and will be able to accommodate at least fifteen vehicles in total. The charging stations will be installed in the coming months.
ABOUT THE MSRC
The Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) was formed in 1990 when Assembly Bill AB 2766 was signed into law authorizing a $4 motor vehicle registration fee. Thirty percent of the $4 fee or approximately $14 million annually is used for programs administered by the MSRC. All of the programs eligible for funding must reduce air pollution from mobile sources.
Membership of the MSRC is made up of representatives from the transportation agencies of Riverside, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Orange County, as well as the Southern California Association of Governments, Southern California Rideshare, California Air Resources Board and the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
