What are MTC Authorities?

MTC Authorities have been created by state law to carry out approved projects for building a better Bay Area.

Joint Powers Authority

MTC Authorities often work together with other agencies that are not mandated by law. These are called “joint powers authority” and are partnerships between similar agencies across separate local or state governments.
