CCTA believes that the future success of Contra Costa County lies in our ability to ensure safe, reliable mobility for all. On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) Board unanimously adopted a transformative plan to move forward on that goal over the next 30 years. The proposed Transportation Expenditure Plan (TEP) is the culmination of months of extensive public outreach, stakeholder engagement, and advocate input. The plan focuses on innovative strategies and new technologies to promote a strong economy, protect the environment, and enhance the quality of life for all of Contra Costa’s diverse communities.
The proposed plan contains unprecedented funding for new technologies and for bicycle and pedestrian improvements in every part of the county. It commits substantial funding to improve BART service, increase access to BART stations, and add new BART cars. It also significantly increases direct funding to local municipalities to maintain and repair local streets and roads. At the May 18th CCTA Board meeting, advocates for local businesses, the environment, and disabled communities spoke in support of the plan and thanked the Board for their leadership and inclusiveness in its development.
