Implemented in 2003, the Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fee (TUMF) is the largest multi-jurisdictional fee program in the nation. As Riverside County’s growth rate continues to surpass all but a few regions nationwide, the TUMF has become a critical way to make sure that growth doesn’t create gridlock on regional and local thoroughfares.
Under the TUMF, Western Riverside County is divided into five zones. The TUMF is structured so that 48.7% of funds generated in each zone go back to that zone to be programmed for projects. Another 48.7% is allocated to regional inter-zone projects programmed by the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), and 2.6% is allocated for regional transit projects programmed by the Riverside Transit Agency.
