Learning about Measure BB
Funding for Transportation
Measure BB, as proposed on the November 4, 2014 ballot, will increase the local transportation sales tax from ½ cent to 1 cent, and will extend it for 30 years. The current ½ cent sales tax, which is the most important source of funding for maintaining and building Oakland’s streets, is scheduled to end 2020. If approved, Oakland will receive $1.4B in transportation funds over the next 30 years, the largest source of transportation funds in the City and are used for a wide variety of projects including:
- Repaving streets
- Repairing sidewalks & installing curb ramps
- Installing traffic and pedestrian signals and other safety improvements
- Maintaining the City’s streetlights, signage and other street infrastructure
- Installing bicycle lanes and parking
- Renovating pedestrian stairs and paths
- Installing transit and pedestrian friendly street designs (road “diets”, traffic calming, bulb-outs, etc.
- Providing required local matching funds for federal and state grants for transportation projects
Measure BB funds will also support several major transportation projects and programs in Oakland including:
- I-880 Broadway/Jackson Access improvements
- 42nd/High I-880 Access Improvements
- Planning for transit improvements on the Broadway Corridor
- Implementation of the Bay Trail and East Bay Greenway Trail
- Access (bike/ped/transit) improvements at BART stations and Eastmont Center
Oakland’s three-year average street Pavement Condition Index (PCI) is currently 60 (on a 100-point scale) and falling. Oakland's pavement condition is ranked 98th among 109 Bay Area jurisdictions, while the Bay Area average is 66. Oakland’s streets are currently on an 85-year paving cycle instead of the 25-30 year industry-preferred cycle. Oakland’s current backlog of street repairs is $443 million and growing.

Recycling every day, at home, at work and at play, is an easy and rewarding practice. By adopting recycling and waste reduction habits, you can reduce pollution and fight climate change. Help Oakland recycle more by making a habit of recycling paper, cardboard, cans and bottles and batteries, and by eliminating wasteful habits. The Recycling Program oversees garbage and recycling services provided by Waste Management of Alameda County and California Waste Solutions and works to ensure that recycling is widely available.
