MTC Authorities carry out projects to make the Bay Area better — like expanding the network of freeway Express Lanes, operating the Freeway Service Patrol and managing toll revenue to keep the seven state-owned bridges safe.
An MTC Authority is created by law to carry out specific duties or projects for residents of the Bay Area. Sometimes these projects have been voted on and approved by the public, and sometimes they are passed into law by the California State Legislature.
MTC Authorities will often work together with other agencies. These are called “joint powers authorities” and are partnerships between similar agencies across separate local or state governments.
