Transportation California represents the construction industry and workforce that builds, repairs, and maintains California’s multimodal transportation system. Founded in 1990, we are non-partisan, non-profit coalition whose management and labor member organizations provide for more than 200,000 California jobs. We advocate for solutions to improve our infrastructure, grow the economy, and enhance our quality of life.
Transportation California has played a leadership role in every major state transportation funding effort since 1990 and most recently as part of the Fix Our Roads Coalition which advocated for the passage of SB 1 – the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 – and ACA 5 which will generate over $54 billion in dedicated and constitutionally protected revenue for investment in our transportation system.

California continues to grapple with numerous intersecting policy issues including affordable housing and homelessness, climate change, and equity which have various influences and impacts for transportation funding and policy.

The State is once again facing a severe economic crisis due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and Transportation California will continue to led transportation industry efforts to protect SB 1 and other transportation investments, which are vital to the state’s recovery and overall economy.
We know that continuing to move ahead means safer roads, greater transportation options, more jobs, a cleaner environment, and a stronger economic future.
