Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA), Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC)
The Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) was created by the California Legislature in 1997 to administer the base $1 auto toll on the San Francisco Bay Area's seven state-owned toll bridges. On Jan. 1, 1998, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) — the transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency for the nine-county region — began operations as BATA. In 2005, the California Legislature expanded BATA’s responsibilities to include administration of all toll revenue. For more information, visit www.mtc.ca.gov.
