About the TA

The San Mateo County Transportation Authority was formed in 1988 with the passage of the voter-approved half-cent sales tax for countywide transportation projects and programs, known as Measure A.

The original Measure A expired Dec. 31, 2008. In 2004, county voters overwhelmingly approved a reauthorization of Measure A through 2033.

The TA’s role is to administer the proceeds from Measure A to fund a broad spectrum of transportation-related projects and programs.

The TA is an independent agency and is governed by an appointed board of seven directors, who are elected officials, representing the county, cities and the San Mateo County Transit District.

  1. Several residents in Menlo Park…have spoken to conductors about the lack of the approaching trains warning sounds
    there is a definite concern and actually resentment at this non conforming “QUIET ZONE” imposed by Atherton legal.. The “Federal Mandate” that trains MUST give a warning before EACH intersection somehow has been passed over. One conductor was present when the train hit a car @Ravenswood..
    a bullet train @ 70 miles an hour, no warning whistle until Atherton line passed.. in access of 16 deaths on
    Caltrain /penninsula route. WHO will correct this danger???
