Transportation 2030 Plan for the San Francisco Bay Area

Steve Heminger, MTC Executive Director

Sue Lempert, MTC Commissioner San Mateo Cities & Counties

Shelia Young, MTC Commissioner Alameda Cities & Counties

Transportation 2030 Mobility For the Next Generation

  • 25-year long-range plan

  • Guides transportation policies and investments in the nine-county region

  • Adopted by Commission in February 2004

  • Update required every four years

Traffic Congestion Persists

  • Bay Area drivers made an estimated 21 million trips

  • Length of average trip increased 25.6 minutes in 1990 to 29.4 minutes in 2000

  • Recent dip in traffic congestion is recession-related

Public Transit on the Rise

  • Increase in the share of work trips by transit, though small by percentage terms, represents a significant increase in the number of additional people taking transit

  • Net increase in 2030 represents an additional 108 million transit riders each year

Commuters Crisscross Region

Top 3 corridors with significant increase in daily trips:

  • 116 percent increase in daily trips over I-680/Sunol Grade corridor between Alameda and Santa Clara counties

  • 90 percent increase over I-580 corridor between Alameda and neighboring San Joaquin Valley/Stanislaus/Merced counties

  • 68 percent increase within Routes 12 & 29 from Napa and Solano counties

Transportation 2030 A New Approach

  • “Financially Constrained” element based on currently available revenues and existing authority (Down Payment)

  • “Vision” element featuring potential new revenue sources and innovative policies to improve mobility (Calls to Action)

Transportation 2030 BudgetProjected 25-Year Revenues for Financially Constrained Element

  • Most of $118 billion budget are local funding sources

Making the Down PaymentProjected 25-Year Revenues for Financially Constrained Element

  • $118 billion spending plan is primarily focused on maintaining and operating the existing transportation system

Transportation 2030 Vision

Investments and Calls to Actions


  • Potholes Ahead: More Local Road Dollars Needed

  • Keeping Trains and Buses Humming

  • State Highways Showing Their Age


  • HOT Network Delivers Carpool Lanes and Congestion Insurance

  • Moving Goods to Market


  • Squeezing Better Mileage From the Existing Network

  • Clean Air in Motion

  • Broadening Access to Mobility

  • Providing A Transportation Lifeline

  • Walk and Roll!

  • A Seamless Transit Trip

  • Enhancing Livability by Connecting Transportation & Land Use

  • Getting There Safe and Sound

Transportation 2030 Investments & Actions

Adequate Maintenance

More Potholes Ahead

  • Call to Action

  • Strengthen Prop. 42

  • Strengthen Prop. 42 to ensure gasoline tax revenues are directed to transportation

  • Condition Maintenance Funds

  • Condition maintenance funds to set maximum efficiency measures and reward cities/counties investing local dollars to local roadways

  • $16.7 billion in roadway maintenance costs

  • $10.6 billion in revenues available as down payment

  • Results in $6.1 billion shortfall

Keep Trains and Buses Humming

  • $16.7 billion in transit capital costs

  • $13.4 billion in revenues available as down payment

  • Results in $2.8 billion shortfall

  • Call to Action

  • Condition Capital Replacement Funds

  • Condition capital replacement fundsbased on ridership and revenue generation

  • Develop “State of Ideal Repair” report to inventory and track transit capital needs

State Highways Showing Their Age

  • $14 billion in State highway maintenance costs

  • $7 billion in revenues available as down payment

  • Results in $7 billion shortfall

  • Call to Action

  • Trim the STIP to Support the SHOPP

  • Delays in maintenance will increase cost of roadway repairs

  • Directing more funding to SHOPP will address repair needs, but leaves less State funding for expansion projects

  • Good news: 2006 STIP and SHOPP estimates show growth in highway maintenance funding

Transportation 2030 Investments & Actions

System Efficiency

Squeezing Better Mileage from Existing Network

  • $742 million needed to deploy Regional Operations Program

  • $329 million in revenues available as down payment

  • Results in $413 million shortfall

  • Call to Action

  • Implement Freeway Metering Lights

  • Ramp metering effectively reduce freeway delays; however, there are local concerns about “spillover” traffic

  • MTC, Caltrans and locals completed ramp metering studies for I-580 corridor in Livermore and US 101 corridor in San Mateo

  • Implementation is underway

Walk and Roll!

  • Significant Bay Area need for pedestrian and bicycle facilities

  • $1 billion estimated for bicycle needs

  • $200 million in revenues committed by Commission as down payment

  • Call to Action

  • Support Walk and Bicycle-Friendly Transportation Sales Tax Measures

  • In 2004, Marin, Sonoma, Contra Costa and San Mateo counties passed sales tax measures with a total of $160 million in earmarks for pedestrian and bicycle facilities

  • Watch Napa and Solano counties future sales tax measures

Enhancing Livability by Connecting Transportation And Land Use

  • Nearly 2 million people and 1.4 million jobs to be added to Bay Area

  • Partnerships amongst regional and local agencies needed to facilitate integration of transportation and land use

  • Joint Policy Committee formed to coordinate regional planning efforts and pursue implementation of the Smart Growth Vision, which was adopted in 2002

  • Call to Action

  • Provide More Land-Use Planning Funds to Partners

  • MTC provides local planning funds through T-PLUS

  • San Mateo County uses T-PLUS funds to augment its Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Program

Clean Air in Motion

  • Call to Action

  • Reduce Particulate Matter from Buses/Heavy Duty Vehicles

  • EPA’s emission standards for 1994 buses have reduced particulate matter by 90 percent

  • MTC funded $14 million program to retrofit 1,700 diesel transit buses with emissions control devices to reduce particulate matter

  • Another $20 million committed to fund free morning commutes on transit on Spare the Air days, older car buy-back program, and other clean air demo projects

  • Cleaner motor vehicles and fuels has helped to improve Bay Area air quality

  • Number of days when region exceeds ozone levels has fallen dramatically over past 40 years

Providing a Transportation Lifeline

  • MTC must consider needs of all travelers to ensure equitable distribution of mobility benefits

  • Low-income Bay Area residents do not own cars, thus rely on transit

  • The challenge is how to respond to Lifeline mobility needs

  • Call to Action

  • Target New Lifeline Funding

  • MTC’s Low-Income Flexibility Transportation (LIFT) Program supports wide range of transportation needs

  • LIFT grant funds San Leandro LINKS Shuttle Program

Transportation 2030 Investments & Actions

Strategic Expansion

HOT Network Delivers Carpool Lanes and Congestion Insurance

  • HOV lanes shave 15-20 minutes off peak commutes, offering commuters a way to beat congestion

  • Express buses use HOV lanes to bypass traffic and provide faster, more reliable service

  • HOT lanes introduce pricing element into highway use by giving solo drivers option to pay to bypass congestion

  • Call to Action

  • Try Before We Buy

  • I-680 Smart Carpool Lane implementation set for 2009 start-up

  • MTC and Caltrans to lead Regional HOT Lane Analysis this fall 2005

Resolution 3434: Bay Area’s Vision for Transit Expansion

  • MTC Resolution 3434 identifies nine new rail extensions, express buses, ferry service, and enhancements to existing rail and bus corridors

  • Success of these transit investments depends on many factors, including supportive land uses

  • Call to Action

  • Condition Transit Expansion Upon Appropriate Land Uses

  • MTC adopted TOD policy in July 2005

  • MTC also committed $2.5 million to support partners in station area planning efforts

Moving Goods to Market

  • Over 37 percent of Bay Area economic output is manufacturing, freight transportation, and warehouse and distribution businesses

  • 80 percent of freight movement occurs on freeway corridors, especially I-880, U.S. 101 and I-80 corridors, followed by rail and air cargo

  • Port of Oakland facilitates maritime freight movement, but is increasingly constrained due to congestion problems

  • Call to Action

  • I-880 Corridor Improvements

  • MTC and our local and federal partners are working to deploy ITS strategies to improve incident management, fund ramp metering, reduce operational difficulties, and provide alternative truck routes
