Triennial Performance Audits of Transit Operators

The Transportation Development Act (TDA) requires MTC, as the regional transportation planning agency for the Bay Area, to conduct triennial performance audits of transit operators that are allocated TDA funding. Each transit operator is audited every three years. About one-third of the operators are audited each year.

Each transit operator’s most recent TDA Triennial Audit report can be found below.
