Measure X: Contra Costa's New Transportation Plan

Join our campaign to secure a stable and significant funding source for bicycling infrastructure in Contra Costa this November.

In 2014, Alameda County approved Measure BB, and now it’s Contra Costa’s turn. On the November 8 ballot residents from El Cerrito to Discovery Bay will weigh in on the future of transportation funding. 

Measure X will need two thirds voter approval, and Bike East Bay will be actively campaigning from today til election day to secure the votes. 

For the past year Bike East Bay has been working on making sure adequate funding bike and pedestrian projects are included in the Transportation Expenditure Plan Measure X is based on. We have secured 8% of the overall funding for bike ped projects which amounts to approximately $224 million out of the expected $2.8 billion measure. Another $230 million is dedicated to major complete street projects, which will include where possible protected bike lanes. The plan also directs significant funding to upgrade BART’s aging train cars.

Measure X has unanimous support from all 19 cities and towns in Contra Costa County. We’d like yours, too! Contact our Advocacy Director Dave Campbell to get involved, or: 

Even if you live in Alameda County, your help is needed to get the word out about Measure X and help out with the campaign.
