The Transportation Agency for Monterey County (TAMC) serves as Monterey County’s Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA), and is a state designated agency responsible for planning and financial programming of transportation projects. As such, TAMC is tasked with developing a Regional Transportation Plan, or RTP, for the county to provide a basis for the allocation of state and federal transportation funds to transportation projects within the county over a long-range timeframe. TAMC is one of three regional transportation planning agencies within the larger MPO area of the Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG).
Most recently, Transportation Agency of Monterey County became the authority for transportation sales tax adopted by voters in November 2016. TAMC will be responsible for distributing funds and assuring that the accountability measures are achieved.
TAMC is a member of the Central Coast Coalition.
