The California Transportation Commission (CTC) was created in 1978 out of the need for a single, unified transportation policy for all of California.
The CTC consists of 11 voting members and two (2) ex-officio (non-voting) members. Of the 11 voting members:
- 9 are appointed by the Governor of California
- 1 is appointed by the California Senate Rules Committee
- 1 is appointed by the California Speaker Of the Assembly
The two (2) ex-officio members are appointed from California’s State Senate and State Assembly. They are typically the chairs (heads) of the transportation policy committees in each house.
What Are the CTC’s Duties?
The CTC budgets and distributes state funding for highway construction, in addition to rail and bus service improvements throughout California. The CTC also advises the California State Legislature on developing and evaluating California’s transportation policies and plans. The CTC also serves as California’s advocate for state and federal laws to ensure transportation funding for California.
