The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) serves as the congestion management agency and transportation authority for the County of Alameda and is responsible for the planning, programming and allocation of federal, state, regional and local funding for transportation improvements throughout Alameda County. Its mission is to plan, fund and deliver transportation programs and projects that expand access and improve mobility to foster a vibrant and livable Alameda County.
Plan: Alameda CTC develops a range of plans that guide transportation development and funding decisions to ensure the county’s transportation system is sustainable for its growing population. Key plans include:
Fund: Alameda CTC manages the county’s voter-approved transportation expenditure plans for Measure B, Measure BB and the Vehicle Registration Fee, as well as distributes state and federal funds. The agency’s Comprehensive Investment Plan, which identifies anticipated transportation funding over a five-year horizon, facilitates strategic programming and allocation of all fund sources within the agency’s programming purview, matches funding sources to targeted transportation investments. Those investments include bicycle and pedestrian safety, bus and rail services, highway investments, local streets and roads, services for seniors and people with disabilities (paratransit), youth transportation, transit-oriented development and transportation technologies.
Deliver: Alameda CTC is delivering over $8 billion in transportation projects and programs in Alameda County, leveraging local funds to attract regional, state and federal funds that enable Alameda CTC to advance delivery of projects on time and within budget.
Goods Movement Collaborative and Plan – Alameda County is a goods movement hub for Northern California, with one third of its employment coming from goods movement-dependent industries. Alameda CTC leads the Goods Movement Collaborative, which brings together partners, community members and stakeholders who understand goods movement needs and priorities and advocate for strategies that address these needs. The Goods Movement Plan, approved in February 2016, envisions a system that will be safe and efficient while providing seamless connections to domestic and international markets, create more jobs and promote innovation, and reduce environmental impacts.
Alameda CTC is a joint powers authority governed by a 22-member Commission comprised of elected officials from each of the 14 cities in Alameda County, all five members of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors and an elected representative from AC Transit and BART, respectively.
