Alameda County Transportation Commission

Last November voters approved Measure BB, which spells out the transportation and transit priorities for Alameda County over the next 30 years and the funding source for these projects: a half cent increase to the previous county sales tax for transportation. The new tax is in place through 2044.

The $8 billion that will be generated by the tax will pay for several major road and transit projects, including a complete reconfiguration of the I-80 Gilman Street interchange in Berkeley and the extension of BART to Livermore, plus an expanded commitment to East Bay paratransit and affordable transit passes for youth and seniors.
