Goods Movement Initiatives: 2009 Update

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) completed the first Regional Goods Movement Study for the San Francisco Bay Area in 2004, and its plan was adopted as part of the Transportation 2030 Regional Transportation Plan. This report focuses on regional efforts since that time and includes information on two key initiatives: The Trade Corridor Improvement Fund and Implications of Local Land Use Decisions on the Goods Movement System. The report notes the importance of goods movement in Northern California as international trade continues to grow. Goods movement corridors connect the Bay Area, Sacramento, and Central Valley regions, and occur primarily along the Central Corridor and the Altamont Corridor. The report also details the effects of additional goods movement efforts, including the federal transportation bill, air quality programs, container fees at the Port of Oakland, and the work of the West Coast Corridor Coalition.
