Alameda CTC coordinates countywide transportation planning efforts; programs local, regional, state and federal funding; and delivers projects and programs including those approved by voters in Alameda County transportation expenditure plans for Measure B, Measure BB and the Vehicle Registration Fee.
Alameda CTC is a joint powers authority governed by a 22-member Commission comprised of elected officials from each of the 14 cities in Alameda County, all five members of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors and elected representatives from AC Transit and BART.
Alameda CTC's main responsibilities are to:
Plan for the future of transportation in Alameda County.
Fund critical transportation programs that serve the public including youth, seniors and people with disabilities.
Deliver innovative transportation projects that extend the life of aging infrastructure, protect the environment, improve transportation access for communitie...s and businesses, and improve goods movement.
Alameda CTC was created in July 2010 by the merger of the Alameda County Congestion Management Agency (ACCMA) and the Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority (ACTIA), to streamline operations, eliminate redundancies and save taxpayers’ dollars. As a result of the merger, Alameda CTC is able to implement more cost-effective methods for planning, funding and delivering programs and projects that benefit Alameda County residents and businesses.
Alameda CTC has five standing committees and receives regular public input from advisory committees made up of the public and agency partners. The public is invited to participate at Commission and committee meetings to help us fulfill our promise to voters to improve transportation and foster a vibrant and livable Alameda County.
