Environmental Impact Report

Under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) must prepare a programmatic Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to inform citizens and decision-makers of potential significant environmental impacts that could result from implementing Plan Bay Area 2050.


On October 21, 2021, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Executive Board of the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) jointly certified the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for Plan Bay Area 2050 and adopted Plan Bay Area 2050. The boards also made and adopted California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Findings and a Statement of Overriding Considerations and prepared a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program.

MTC and ABAG released the Draft Environmental Impact Report for Plan Bay Area 2050 in June, kicking off a 47-day public review and comment period. A Final EIR was prepared following public review and comment on the Draft EIR. The Final EIR consists of changes to the Draft EIR and written responses to comments submitted during the public comment period. Read the Final EIR below.
