"We're helping to ensure that the next generation of transportation projects keeps Contra Costa moving."

The Future of Transportation is
Closer than You Think

Understanding where we are going and how we will get there is key to CCTA's mission. From studying solutions to congestion along key corridors to facilitating local planning studies, we're helping to ensure that the next generation of transportation projects keeps Contra Costa moving.

Your Voice = Corridor Improvements
We heard from Contra Costa residents that you want better options along key highway corridors-including I-80 and I-680-and we're listening! Our team of expert planners are examining options to relieve the heavy congestion along these corridors through the heart of the county and near the western shore.

The I-680 study proposes enhanced local and express bus service with new park and ride lots. During peak periods, buses could be allowed to use the right-hand shoulder to skip past traffic congestion. Projects that deploy breakthrough innovations in autonomous vehicles are also proposed throughout the I-680 corridor, putting it at the cutting edge of new traffic-busting technologies.

CCTA Funding Supports Local Planning Studies and Growth Management

As we plan for Contra Costa County's future, we’re listening to local needs. Part of this work entails supporting local city governments in their own planning efforts. Making smart and locally-driven decisions about locating new developments closer to transit allows us to compete economically while preserving our unique environment and rural agriculture.

Studying New Connection Between Brentwood and Tracy

Thanks to residents' feedback, CCTA is exploring the establishment of a new connection into the Bay Area to reduce congestion and freight traffic in the southeastern portion of the county. The possibility of a new, multimodal corridor presents opportunities for job creation and safer transportation for everyone in the area.
