Final Plan Bay Area 2050 (2021)

After nearly four years of technical analysis and deep engagement with Bay Area residents and partners, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) jointly adopted Plan Bay Area 2050 in October 2021.

On October 21, 2021, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and the Executive Board of the Association of Bay Area Governments jointly adopted Plan Bay Area 2050 and its related supplemental reports. The momentous milestone makes Plan Bay Area 2050 the official regional long-range plan, charting a course for a Bay Area that is affordable, connected, diverse, healthy and vibrant for all residents through 2050 and beyond.

Plan Bay Area 2050 connects the elements of housing, the economy, transportation and the environment through 35 strategies that will make the Bay Area more equitable for all residents and more resilient in the face of unexpected challenges. In the short-term, the plan’s Implementation Plan identifies more than 80 specific actions for MTC, ABAG and partner organizations to take over the next five years to make headway on each of the 35 strategies.
