Direct Local Program Distribution Payments

Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) manages the following three local fund sources, and makes monthly direct local distribution payments to local jurisdictions and transit agencies for transportation improvements for which the following implementation guidelines have been developed to specify requirements that local jurisdictions must follow in their use of Measure B, Measure BB and Vehicle Registration Fees (VRF) direct local distribution funds:

Measure B was passed by voters in 2000. The half-cent sales tax authorized by the 2000 Measure B will be in effect for 20 years; sales tax collection began on April 1, 2002 and will extend through March 31, 2022. Alameda CTC makes monthly Measure B direct local jurisdictions and transit agencies for the following programs:

  • Local Streets and Roads (including county bridges)
  • Bicycle and Pedestrian
  • Transit
  • Paratransit

Voters passed Measure BB in November 2014 and collection of the initial half-cent transportation sales tax by the Board of Equalization began on April 1, 2015 and will extend through March 31, 2022. The full one-cent sales tax authorized by Measure BB will begin April 1, 2022 and will extend through March 31, 2045. Starting in July 2015, Alameda CTC began making monthly direct local distribution payments to local jurisdictions and transit agencies, per the 2014 Transportation Expenditure Plan, for the following programs:

  • Local Streets and Roads (including county bridges)
  • Bicycle and Pedestrian
  • Transit
  • Paratransit
Alameda CTC makes monthly Vehicle Registration Fee (VRF) direct local distribution payments to 14 cities in Alameda County and the County of Alameda for the Local Road Improvement and Repair Program. The agency also provides funds to local recipients through three VRF programs on a discretionary basis: Transit for Congestion Relief Program, Local Transportation Technology Program and Pedestrian and Bicyclist Access and Safety Program.
