At its January 2019 Commission meeting, the Alameda CTC unanimously re-elected Supervisor Richard Valle as its chair, and San Leandro Mayor Pauline Cutter as vice chair.
â€œI am honored to be re-elected as chair of the Alameda County Transportation Commission,â€ says Chair Valle, who has been a member of the Commission since 2012. â€œIt is a great privilege to continue to lead Alameda CTC in partnership with my colleagues as we deliver critically important transportation programs and projects throughout Alameda County. This year we will focus on leveraging our local Measure BB funds to close project funding gaps with new state and regional funds.â€
Upon taking this leadership role, Chair Valle outlined several priorities for 2019, among many, including:
- Advancing our rail strategy while expanding our Safe Routes to Schools program to include a rail safety education program to reduce pedestrian collisions
- Major multimodal corridor improvements
- Improving interregional connectivity while easing traffic congestion and improving local traffic circulation and safety
- Countywide expansion of the Affordable Student Transit Pass program
â€œIâ€™m excited to continue our collaborative work at Alameda CTC as we deliver projects and programs to the public,â€ says Vice Chair Pauline Cutter, Mayor of the City of San Leandro. â€œThanks to the voter-approved Measure BB, we are working year-round to improve mobility for bicyclists and pedestrians, support our transportation infrastructure, and leverage our local funding in order to meet the demands on the regional transportation network.â€
