Climate Change Programs

MTC is working for a cleaner, greener and healthier Bay Area.

Much of this effort is required by state law — and we’re meeting the challenge head on.

There are many issues we must tackle across our region:

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from an ever-increasing number of cars and trucks
  • Planning ahead for rising sea levels' impact on the many communities that surround San Francisco Bay
  • Adapting to a changing climate that may affect our transportation systems and development opportunities

We are excited about our projects and plans to help the Bay Area adapt to climate change.

You can find detailed information in this section (see the navigation bar to the left).

MTC collaborates with a wide range of partners on clean air and climate initiatives.

These include the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, the Bay Conservation and Development Commission and Bay Area cities and counties as well as Caltrans, transit operators, and state and federal agencies.

Can we protect our environment while allowing for regional growth?
