The Kern Transportation Foundation (KTF) was created in 1992 by a group of business and government officials to support transportation programs in Kern County, California. The Kern region was experiencing significant growth during the 1980’s and 1990’s. However, with that population and housing growth, transportation funding was not keeping pace. The need for the organization was identified when
several of the transportation systems within Kern County were incomplete and/or underfunded. The Articles of Incorporation were issued by the California Secretary of State on February 11, 1992. Since its incorporation, the Kern Transportation Foundation has funded and prepared several studies that include identifying street and highway deficiencies and funding shortfalls as well as rail passenger terminal location studies. The KTF has hosted several forums, symposiums and conferences since 1992 that have addressed transportation needs and community design alternatives. Today, KTF is staffed by volunteers dedicated to informing the residents of Kern County about the transportation needs, challenges and plans to expand and maintain our roadway, bicycle, pedestrian, public transportation passenger and aviation systems in Kern County.
The KTF is also dedicated providing public forums for the discussion of transportation issues facing our communities.
