Vital Signs

MTC is measuring the Bay Area’s performance on a range of issues to better understand where we are succeeding and where we are falling short.

We make better decisions about transportation, land use, the environment and the economy by collecting our region’s vital signs.

MTC developed Vital Signs – our interactive website that tracks what we’re doing now, what we’ve done in the past, and where we’re headed in the future.

MTC spearheads and manages regional programs such as the Clipper® transit fare card and forges the institutional ties needed to improve the efficiency of the transportation network.

Advocate + Lead

MTC promotes Bay Area priorities in Sacramento and Washington, D.C., and helps the region put its best foot forward in the often intense competition for state and federal transportation funding.


What Is MTC?

Children wearing bike helmets and with bikes raise their arms above their heads

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission, or MTC, is the transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.

We’re part of every trip you take.

We collaborate with a network of other public agencies to help support the streets, roads, highways, transit systems and other transportation resources that help millions of people get to where they need to be.

Think BART, your ferry ride, miles of bike paths, FasTrak, freeway conditions, your commute times, our bridges... even climate change and how it affects the projects we work on.

MTC touches it all with a focus on building a stronger transportation system that works for everyone, promotes economic vitality and protects our environment.
