Bay Area transportation plan outlines $82 billion investment

Posted on August 15, 2001

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), which represents nine counties in the San Francisco Bay Area, has submitted a long-range plan that outlines how $82 billion in transportation funds should be invested over the next 25 years. Of the $82 billion that the MTC expects to be available through federal, state and local sources, about 90%, or $74 billion, is already committed to maintaining the existing transportation infrastructure or to new or expansion projects approved by voters. Transit projects that are being considered include extending BART to San Jose, a people-mover connection to the Oakland International Airport, a Third Street light-rail connection to San Francisco's Chinatown and various express and urban rapid bus services. A series of eight meetings have been scheduled in September to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on the plan, which also projects the region's population and job growth. The 182-page draft plan can be viewed and downloaded at the MTC Website at www.mtc.ca.gov.
