MTC helps the Bay Area's nearly eight million residents — and countless visitors — get around.

As a Metropolitan Planning Organization, MTC supports the region’s network of streets, roads, highways, public transit systems, airports and other transportation resources, including the movement of goods through ports and freight rail lines.

MTC touches it all, with a focus on building a better transportation system that works for everyone while supporting a resilient economy and environment.

MTC works with cities and counties to establish short- and long-term goals and provides resources to help them reach these goals. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, making safer streets that work for everybody and making sure all residents have equal access to transportation resources are just a few of these goals.

For details about MTC's state-mandated roles and responsibilities, see California Government Code Sections 66500-66536.2.
