The Alameda County Transportation Expenditure Plans guide the expenditures of voter-approved transportation funds generated through the countywide transportation sales tax. The 2000 and 2014 expenditure plans were developed to serve major regional transportation needs in Alameda County and to address congestion in every major commute corridor in the county. 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.
2014 Measure BB Transportation Expenditure Plan
On January 23, 2014, the Alameda County Transportation Commission approved the 2014 Transportation Expenditure Plan (TEP), a 30-year plan to address Alameda County’s continued transportation needs. On November 4, 2014, 70 percent of Alameda County voters approved Measure BB and its expenditure plan, which will generate nearly $8 billion over 30 years for essential transportation improvements in every city throughout Alameda County.
On September 24, 2020, the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) approved an amendment to the 2014 TEP. The amendment includes:
- Acknowledgement of the Tri-Valley-San Joaquin Valley Rail Authority (TVSJVRRA) as a new agency in Alameda County that can be an eligible recipient of Measure BB funds
- Removal of the BART to Livermore project and associated $400 million Measure BB funding
- Addition of the Valley Link in Alameda County project with $400 million in Measure BB funding
- Associated technical amendments

The 2000 Transportation Expenditure Plan guides investments in Alameda County of more than $1.4 billion (in 1998 dollars) generated by Measure B through the year 2022. In 2000, 81.5 percent of Alameda County voters approved an extension of Measure B, which was originally approved in 1986.

Comprehensive Investment Plan
The Comprehensive Investment Plan (CIP) adopted by the Commission in June 2015 and updated in July 2016, translates long-range plans into a short-range investment strategy by establishing a list of near-term priority improvements to enhance and maintain Alameda County’s transportation system in accordance with Countywide Transportation Plan objectives.
The CIP identifies anticipated transportation funding over a five-year horizon and strategically matches funding sources to targeted transportation investments. The expenditure and revenue assumptions included in the CIP are updated annually, and proposals for new projects and programs are considered every two years as part of the full update cycle.
The CIP also serves to satisfy the strategic plan requirements for the 1986 Measure B, 2000 Measure B, 2010 Vehicle Registration Fee and the 2014 Measure BB programs, each of which represents a fund source that Alameda CTC administers. In addition, the CIP serves as the Capital Improvement Program required of Alameda CTC as the congestion management agency for Alameda County.
Previous Strategic Plans
The Measure B Capital Program Strategic Plan for fiscal year 2013-2014 outlines the annual allocations to the 27 capital projects identified as Tier 1 in the 2000 Transportation Expenditure Plan and the approach for delivery of the remainder of the capital projects authorized in 1986.
The Vehicle Registration Fee Strategic Plan guides the implementation of the four programs identified in the Vehicle Registration Fee Expenditure Plan.
