The mission of the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) 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 • Fund • Deliver
Alameda CTC coordinates countywide transportation planning efforts; programs local, regional, state and federal funding; and delivers projects and programs including those approved by voters in Alameda County transportation expenditure plans. The 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 elected representatives from AC Transit and BART.
Alameda CTC was created in July 2010 by the merger of the Alameda County Congestion Management Agency (ACCMA) and the Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority (ACTIA), to streamline operations, eliminate redundancies and save taxpayers’ dollars. As a result of the merger, Alameda CTC is able to implement more cost-effective methods for planning, funding and delivering programs and projects that benefit Alameda County residents and businesses.
Alameda CTC has assumed all duties of the ACCMA and ACTIA. As successor to ACTIA, Alameda CTC delivers the Expenditure Plan for Measure B, the half-cent sales tax approved by 81.5 percent of county voters in 2000. The Expenditure Plan contains a number of capital projects-including freeway widening, interchange improvements, high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, BART extensions and transit station development-as well as programs for local street and road improvements (fixing potholes), special transportation services for seniors and disabled individuals, bicycle and pedestrian safety, and transit operations.
In assuming the duties of ACCMA, Alameda CTC coordinates countywide transportation planning and attracts state and federal funding for project implementation.
Alameda CTC receives regular public input from community and technical advisory committees made up of the public and agency partners. Our Community Advisory Committees provide a variety of input to the Alameda CTC on project and program funding, and report to the public on implementation and expenditures. The Alameda County Technical Advisory Committee is comprised of representatives from all 14 cities, the county and other partners, and provides technical feedback to the agency.
The public is invited to participate at Commission and committee meetings to help us create, maintain and expand mobility improvements in Alameda County.
