Vital Signs

MTC is monitoring the Bay Area’s performance on a range of measures to better understand where our region is succeeding, and where it is 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 – an interactive website that tracks what we’re doing now, what we’ve done in the past, and where we’re headed in the future.

Visit Vital Signs and find out how we’re doing.

We invite you to discover:

  • Which freeway is the most congested?
  • Is my commute time going up?
  • How many more people ride BART than AC Transit?
  • Where are rents rising fastest? Home prices?
  • Are potholes worse in my neighborhood than elsewhere?
  • How does the Bay Area compare to other major metro areas?
  • Is our air clean?

Find out how we measure the “health” of our infrastructure, housing, economy and environment.  Get the stats at Vital Signs
