REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS – Alameda CTC RFP No. R21-0001
The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) is a joint powers agency which
plans, funds and delivers a broad spectrum of transportation projects and programs to enhance
mobility throughout Alameda County, as the successor to three previous agencies: Alameda County
Transportation Authority (ACTA), Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority
(ACTIA) and Alameda County Congestion Management Agency (ACCMA).
ACTA was created by the approval of Measure B by Alameda County voters in November 1986.
Measure B authorized the imposition of a half-cent sales and use tax in the County for a period of 15
years, the proceeds of which were principally reserved for highway improvements, local transportation
improvements, and transit funding in the County.
In November 2000, prior to the expiration of the first Measure B, the Alameda County Board of
Supervisors placed a new Measure B on the ballot and Alameda County voters approved the measure
with 81.5% support. The 2000 Measure B authorized the extension of the collection and expenditure
of a half-cent sales tax for a period of 20 years, in order to address major transportation needs and
congestion in Alameda County. ACTIA was instituted to administer the new Measure B funds, as
detailed in the 2000 Transportation Expenditure Plan, including contract oversight, policy direction,
financing, investment management, and coordinating projects with regional transit and transportation
agencies and other Project Sponsors.
Although ACTA stopped collecting sales taxes in 2002, the agency continued its function to complete
certain unfinished projects. On June 24, 2010, the ACTA Board adopted a resolution to transfer all of
ACTA’s assets, responsibilities, functions and liabilities to ACTIA, effective on July 1, 2010, and to
terminate ACTA following the completion of the transfer process.
ACCMA was created in 1991 by a joint powers agreement between Alameda County and all its
incorporated cities. ACCMA’s goals, duties and composition enabled the local government to better
address the complex problem of traffic congestion. ACCMA was responsible for planning,
programming, and coordinating Federal, State, and Regional funds for transportation projects within
One such planning effort by the ACCMA evolved into a capital project, the Sunol Smart Carpool
Lane Project. The Sunol Smart Carpool Lane Joint Powers Authority (Sunol JPA) was created in
February 2006, pursuant to a Joint Exercise of Powers Agreement between ACCMA, ACTIA and the
Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority. The Sunol JPA was formed to plan, design and construct,
and then administer the operation of a value pricing HOV program on the Sunol Grade segment of
Interstate 680 in Alameda and Santa Clara Counties. The Sunol JPA began project operations when
the I-680 Southbound Express Lane was opened to traffic on September 20, 2010. The Sunol JPA
will also operate the I-680 Northbound Express Lane when the facility is opened to the general public
in the near future. Alameda CTC serves as the Managing Agency for the Sunol JPA.
In early 2010, ACTIA, ACCMA, the County of Alameda, the fourteen incorporated cities within
Alameda County, the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART), and the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit
District each took actions required to create a new joint powers agency known as Alameda CTC,
which combined the roles of ACCMA and ACTIA.
On June 24, 2010, the Boards of ACTIA and ACCMA gave the final approval required to create
Alameda CTC. After a transition period required to accomplish certain administrative matters, at the
close of business on February 29, 2012, ACTIA and ACCMA were both terminated, and Alameda
