From the bay to the delta, from the mountains to the vineyards, the transportation network knits the Bay Area’s nine counties together. The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC)'s planning work helps a complicated system work better for residents and visitors — now and in the future. A number of technical assistance programs are available:
- Complete Streets & Quick-Builds: Provides tools for emerging street types, safety strategies and quick build materials.
- Innovative Deployments to Enhance Arterials (IDEA): Assists public agencies with enhancements to mobility, sustainability and safety along major arterials by deploying mature, commercially available technologies or newer, higher-risk connected and automated vehicle technologies.
- Pavement Management Technical Assistance Program (P-TAP): Helps cities and counties stretch their budgets by implementing, updating and maintaining pavement management databases, providing accurate pavement conditions data and management of non-pavement street and road assets.
- Program for Arterial System Synchronization (PASS): Delivers financial and technical assistance to cities and counties to enhance signal operations along major arterials.
- Parking: Helps cities manage parking supply and demand, including:
- Streetsaver®: A web-based application that assists jurisdictions with data storage and that provides complex analysis of pavement and non-pavement maintenance needs, including budgets and performance targets.
