The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is soliciting proposals from local agencies for planning assistance to develop parking management plans or conduct specific planning activities necessary to implement parking management projects or programs. The Local Parking Management Program Planning Grants aim to support planning projects that align with Plan Bay Area 2050 strategies by managing parking demand to reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT), greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and advance other regional priorities.
 
For this planning grant program, MTC will administer consultant service contracts to complete selected projects for local public agencies.

Refer to the Parking Management Planning Grant website for more information.

For other questions, please contact James Choe, Climate Program Manager: jchoe@bayareametro.gov
