Contra Costa Transportation Authority
A Note from the Executive Director
This year, the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) continued its important work to plan, fund, and implement countless projects and programs that have improved the lives of Contra Costa residents.
As I reflect back on 2015, I’m especially proud that our efforts represent the breadth of needs that face our diverse county, as well as CCTA's continuous focus on efficient project delivery and cost control. Some highlights include:
- Engaging over 15,000 Contra Costa residents in our work via a series of community meetings across the county, telephone town halls, and a unique online tool.
- Completing multiple infrastructure projects on time and on budget, breaking ground on new projects to deliver meaningful transportation improvements to county residents, and undertaking new studies that will influence future transportation decisions.
- Advancing transportation technology by bringing self-driving cars to Contra Costa to be tested at GoMentum Station, and helping connect commuters on I-80 with an innovative rideshare app.
- Increasing transparency through quarterly project status reports, and ensuring that for every sales tax dollar CCTA invests on major projects, we're able to nearly double our investment by leveraging funds from other sources.
CCTA believes that the success of Contra Costa lies in the ability to ensure safe, reliable mobility for all, and we welcome the challenge of doing our part to reduce emissions and strengthen the economy in 2016 and beyond.
