The Countywide Transportation Plan
Alameda CTC is launching the 2016 Countywide Transportation Plan (CTP) Update and is soliciting applications for projects and programs to include in the CTP.
Alameda CTC is hosting the first of two application workshops on Thursday, June 4, 2015 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Alameda CTC’s office in downtown Oakland at 1111 Broadway, Suite 800. The second workshop is on July 9.
Public agencies or nonprofit organizations with the sponsorship from a public agency that has jurisdiction over the area in which the transportation project/program is located may submit applications. The application process will take place online. Applications will be available June 1, 2015. A link will be available here beginning June 1.
The CTP Update will develop a performance-based, long-range plan (through 2040) for Alameda County's multimodal transportation network that will also inform the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's Regional Transportation Plan. The CTP will provide a basis for the programming and allocation of funds within the purview of Alameda CTC decision-making authority, including local, regional, state and federal funds. The CTP is scheduled for adoption by Alameda CTC in June 2016.
Thursday, June 4, 2015 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at 1111 Broadway, Suite 800, Oakland

The Alameda Countywide Transportation Plan is a long-range policy document that guides transportation funding decisions for Alameda County's transportation system for the next 25 years. It was approved by the Commission in June 2012. For additional information on the development and links to the complete plan and appendices, click here. The Countywide Transportation Plan is updated every four years.
Alameda CTC developed the CTP working together with residents, businesses and communities. To develop the CTP, Alameda CTC involved residents and groups representing seniors, people with disabilities, bicycle advocates, environmental, education and faith-based groups, businesses and local jurisdictions. Alameda CTC also worked with a Steering Committee, Community Advisory Working Group and Technical Advisory Working Group. These committees included representatives from 15 local jurisdictions, six transit operators, Caltrans District 4, the Port of Oakland, MTC and other community and agency stakeholders and the public, to identify and prioritize projects and programs.
The CTP serves as Alameda County’s input to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission in its development of the Regional Transportation Plan. All projects requesting state or federal funding must be consistent with the RTP. The sales tax expenditure plans (Measure B and Measure BB) are key sources of funding for transportation projects and programs in Alameda County. Projects and programs for the expenditure plans were drawn from the CTP.
