Alameda CTC Projects & Programs

The City of Union City and The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) are working together on a variety of transportation improvement projects and programs.

Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority (ACTIA) was established when voters in Alameda County approved Measure B, which authorized the collection of a half-cent sales tax. In mid-2010, ACTIA merged with Alameda County Congestion Management Agency (ACCMA) to form the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC).

In November 2010, voters approved Measure F, the Alameda County Vehicle Registration Fee (VRF). This measure, which collects $10 per year as part of vehicle registration, began in May 2011 with the goal to strengthen the County's transportation network and reduce traffic congestion and pollution.

In 2014, voters approved Measure BB to augment and extend the existing sales tax measure. The collection of Measure BB funds began in April 2015.

Alameda CTC collects and administers the funds and provides the City of Union City with funding to help maintain our local streets and roads and implement bike and pedestrian improvements projects. All Measure B, Measure BB and Measure F funds come with specific program and financial compliance requirements.
