2014 Transportation Expenditure Plan – Measure BB
In 2014, Alameda County voters approved Measure BB, authorizing an extension and augmentation of the existing transportation sale tax (Measure B). Measure BB is projected to generate approximately $8 billion in revenues from April 2015 to March 2045 for transportation improvements for Alameda County.
The 2014 Transportation Expenditure Plan (2014 TEP) guides the investments of Measure BB revenues toward capital projects and programs that improve the countywide transportation system. Priorities are to:
- Expand BART, bus, ferry and rail services.
- Keep fares affordable for youth, seniors and people with disabilities.
- Provide traffic relief by improving local streets and roads and highway corridors.
- Improve air quality and provide clean transportation by expanding bicycle and pedestrian paths and the regional rail network.
- Create good jobs within Alameda County by requiring local contracting and supporting community developments that improve access to jobs and schools.
As part of the 2014 TEP, local agencies and transit jurisdictions receive Measure BB direct local distributions to support these transportation investments. The direct local distributions amount to approximately $70 million annually and are prioritized for use locally by the recipient.
The 2014 TEP also designates funding for the following programs:
- Affordable Student Transit Pass Program
- Bicycle and Pedestrian Program
- Community Development Investments Program
- Coordination and Service Grants (Paratransit Program)
- Freight and Economic Development Program
- Technology, Innovation and Development Program
- Transit Innovative Grant Program (including student transportation programs)
Direct Local Distributions
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.
