S.F. Bay area planners to prioritize transportation projects through 2035


San Francisco Bay area planners and Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) members are seeking input on how to spend about $30 billion in discretionary transportation dollars over a 25-year period before finalizing a long-term regional transportation plan.

Between 2010 and 2035, MTC expects about $220 billion in local, state and federal funds to be available for Bay area transportation projects and programs. Of that, $190 billion already is committed through voter mandates, state law or MTC policy to expand and maintain the regional transportation system. The remaining funds can be used for rail and bus system improvements and expansions, new highways and streets, transit-oriented development programs and greenhouse-gas emission reduction initiatives.

Through June 27, Bay area residents can complete an online survey at to provide input on transportation project priorities.
