The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) is your get-things-done, go-to place for transportation solutions that connect your life.  We are the fiscally-responsible steward of your Measure A sales tax dollars, which fund transportation improvements that Riverside County voters have approved by more than a two-thirds vote.

RCTC is governed by your elected representatives: one from each city council and all five County Supervisors within Riverside County, plus a representative of Caltrans.  RCTC is operated by a small team of public servants, who are charged with delivering on Measure A’s promises to the taxpayers of Riverside County.

We harness the efficiency and innovation of the private sector to deliver many of the projects, plans and programs that you see on the road.


Riverside County is growing and we need new highway lanes, bridges, and interchanges to keep you moving and keep you safe as you move around town.  With Measure A sales tax dollars, RCTC makes major improvements to highway corridors that you rely upon daily, such as: State Routes 60, 79, 86 and 91 and Interstates 10, 15, and 215.  RCTC also helps local communities build railroad overpasses and underpasses to eliminate frustrating traffic delays, safety hazards, and harmful pollution as trains travel through your neighborhoods.

State of the art technology allows you to make better choices before traveling. can match you with a rideshare, show you public transit options, or see real-time traffic conditions including live video feeds.  You can also sign-up for RCTC’s e-newsletter and follow our social media channels to stay in the know about your trip.

Nothing is as important as what’s outside your front door. That’s why RCTC distributes Measure A sales tax funds to every locality in Riverside County to take care of local streets and roads that you rely upon every day.  Each community receives a fair share of local road funds to ensure that your tax dollars are indeed working for you.

We know that getting to where you need to go without a car is often a matter of health, education, employment, and peace of mind.  RCTC funds public bus, rail, and specialized transit services in Riverside County, helping commuters, the elderly, disabled, and veterans.  We work together with our partners at Metrolink, SunLine Transit Agency, Riverside Transit Agency and municipal and nonprofit transit organizations to connect your life.

Our friendly Freeway Service Patrol helps you with basic roadside needs to keep you safe and keep traffic moving.  On certain highways in Riverside County if you find yourself in an accident or breakdown, we’ll help change your tire, replace hoses, give you a gallon of gas, or tow you to a safer spot.  Freeway Service Patrol is a public service of RCTC, Caltrans, and CHP that gives you peace of mind and more time. RCTC also funds Call Boxes on state highways in Riverside County so you can get help as soon as possible.
