Measure B/BB Transportation Sales Tax and Vehicle
Registration Fee Funding

 In November 2000, Alameda County voters approved MeasureACTC Logo
B, a continuation of the county's half-cent transportation
sales tax through 2022. The Alameda County Transportation
Commission (Alameda CTC), 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 November 2014, Alameda County voters approved Measure
BB, authorizing an extension and augmentation of the
existing transportation sale tax (Measure B). Measure BB is
projected to generate approximately $8 billion in revenues from
April 2015 to March 2045 for transportation improvements for
Alameda County. Priorities are to: 

  • Expand BART, bus, ferry and rail services. 
  • Keep fares affordable for youth, seniors and people with
    disabilities. 
  • Provide traffic relief by improving local streets and roads and
    highway corridors. 
  • Improve air quality and provide clean transportation by
    expanding bicycle and pedestrian paths and the regional rail
    network. 
  • Create good jobs within Alameda County by requiring local
    contracting and supporting community developments that improve
    access to jobs and schools.

In November 2010 the Measure F Alameda County Vehicle
Registration Fee
 (VRF) Program was approved by
Alameda County voters. The fee will generate about $11 million per
year by a $10 per year vehicle registration fee. The collection of
the $10 per year vehicle registration fee started in May 2011. The
goal of the VRF program is to sustain the County's transportation
network and reduce traffic congestion and vehicle related
pollution.
