In an effort to ensure a commitment to improve traffic congestion and transportation, Alameda County taxpayers have approved Measure B and BB sales tax for transportation projects.
- The ballot measure, Measure B, was overwhelmingly approved by county voters in 2000. The half-cent sales tax authorized by the 2000 Measure B will be in effect for 20 years; sales tax collection began on April 1, 2002, and will extend through March 31, 2022.
- The ballot measure, Measure BB, was approved by 70% of county voters in 2014. The sales tax authorized by the 2014 Measure BB will be in effect for 30 years; sales tax collection of a half cent will begin on April 1, 2015, and will extend through March 31, 2022. The full one-cent sales tax authorized by Measure BB will begin April 1, 2022, and will extend through March 31, 2045.
- The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) oversees Measure B & BB, its funding, and the implementation of projects and programs by the communities that receive those funds.
- Measure B & BB funding received annually is used for local street and road improvements, paratransit operations, and bicycle and pedestrian improvements.
