MTC Adopts 10-Year Investment Strategy for Goods Movement

Goods Movement

The MTC Commission today adopted an investment strategy for goods movement which will direct $3.8 billion over 10 years to 20 different projects in the Bay Area, with a particular focus on Interstate Corridors and the Port of Oakland in Alameda County. 

Currently, almost $1 trillion in freight flows to, from or through Northern California every year and these flows are projected to double by 2040. The goods movement sector is crucial to the success of many other related industries and is a key component of the region’s economic strategy for increasing access to living-wage jobs that have low educational barriers to entry.

MTC and the Alameda County Transportation Commission (ACTC) adopted a Goods Movement Plan in 2016. The Goods Movement Investment Strategy will be a key component of implementing the plan and will confer many benefits for the region, including:  

1. Deliver projects that can improve mobility and economic vitality. The strategy will help implement projects and programs crucial to achieving Plan Bay Area 2040’s performance targets.
