As a legal entity, NCTC can pursue federal, state and county transportation dollars from gas taxes, sales taxes and vehicle registration fees for the region. NCTC plans collaboratively for transportation improvement projects for North Los Angeles County and works with federal, state and local elected officials and transportation agencies such as Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro), Caltrans and Metrolink to advocate for the investment of tax dollars in mobility improvements in the region.
NCTC is an important player in the request for funds from California Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, and Measure M – the Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan – a sales tax increase that was approved by voters in 2016.
Together, the measures provide millions of dollars for transportation projects such as street improvements, expanded public transit, highway improvements, and bike and pedestrian connections to transit.
The NCTC JPA is governed by a board of directors representing the four member jurisdictions. The board meets quarterly to receive agency reports and establish priorities and plans. Public participation is welcome and encouraged.
