MTC Signs On To Effort To Upgrade U.S. ATC System

Bay Area Airports, Business Interests Also Join National NextGen Advancement Initiative

"We applaud the progress the FAA is making with NextGen, but at an estimated cost of $40 billion, there are continuing concerns that appropriated levels for NextGen funding are falling short of what is needed," added MTC Commissioner Spering. "Additional delays in implementing NextGen will only increase costs for the program. Along with the other members of NAANG, we in the Bay Area are calling on Congress to make funding of NextGen a top national transportation and infrastructure priority again, and to fund the NextGen program at levels that will ensure its success." 

MTC is the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area's transportation planning, coordinating and financing agency.
