Measure B Sales Tax Funding
In November 2000, Alameda County voters approved Measure B, a continuation of the county’s half-cent transportation sales tax through 2022. The Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority (ACTIA), which administers Measure B, developed an expenditure plan with the following regional priorities:
- expand mass transit programs,
- fix aging highways,
- maintain and improve local streets and roads,
- improve bike and pedestrian safety, and
- expand special transportation services for seniors and people with disabilities.
In July 2010, the Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority (ACTIA) merged with the Alameda County Congestion Management Agency to become the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC). More information about Measure B is available at www.alamedactc.org.
