Plan Bay Area 2040: Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy

Post Date:10/04/2017

The final Plan Bay Area 2040 is now available at Electronic versions of the Final Plan, Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and all supplementary reports can be downloaded at

Plan Bay Area 2040, adopted jointly by the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) on July 26, 2017, is a 24-year regional transportation and land use roadmap for future growth and is the strategic update to Plan Bay Area, which was adopted in 2013. Plan Bay Area 2040 guides the nine-county region in meeting the requirements of California’s landmark 2008 Senate Bill 375, which calls on each of the state’s 18 metropolitan planning organizations to develop a Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) as part of their long-range Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The joint RTP/SCS must accommodate future population growth while reducing per-capita carbon dioxide emissions from cars and light trucks – performance targets achieved by Plan Bay Area 2040.
