A Note from the Executive Director

Throughout 2016, the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) continued its work to plan, fund, and implement infrastructure and transportation programs that strengthen our communities and improve the lives of Contra Costa residents.

Whether you’re a student, a senior, an individual with disabilities, or a commuter going to work, CCTA strives to improve the mobility of our diverse county.  Examples of CCTA's continuous focus on efficient project delivery and cost control include:

  • Being named Organization of the Year by the California Transportation Foundation;
  • Cutting the ribbon on the Highway 4 widening projects – a six-year effort that will reduce congestion and improve public transit access by doubling highway capacity and adding a BART extension; and
  • Advancing transportation technology by furthering testing of self-driving cars at GoMentum Station. GoMentum was named one of ten Autonomous Vehicle Proving Grounds by the federal Department of Transportation.

CCTA is committed to ensuring safe, reliable mobility for every Contra Costa County resident. We look forward to continuing our work to reduce harmful emissions, deliver innovative and efficient transportation projects, and strengthen the economy in 2017 and beyond.
