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, the economy and social equity 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.

Regional Measure 3 (RM 3), approved by 55 percent of Bay Area voters, was a ballot measure on the June 5, 2018 ballot in the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. The measure will fund major roadway and public transit improvements via an increase in bridge tolls on the Bay Area's seven state-owned toll bridges.

Richmond-San Rafael Bridge Updates

The Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) is spearheading a pair of projects to improve mobility along the Interstate 580 corridor between Richmond and San Rafael.

MTC Express Lanes

Traffic stands at a halt while a single car moves freely in the express lane.

MTC Express Lanes are carpool lanes that are free for carpools, buses, motorcycles and other eligible vehicles. Solo motorists — who choose to pay a toll — can use express lanes, too.

What Is MTC?

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.
