Follow Us! Web 2.0 and Social Media at MTC
Now there are more ways than ever before to keep in touch, and find out about MTC's meetings, workshops, new publications, funding opportunities, services and the like. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, view recent videos on YouTube and Vimeo, and subscribe to our daily headline service, alerts about press releases and several other fresh information streams via RSS feeds and GovDelivery e-mail alerts (look for the little red subscription envelope on our home page). These social media tools offer news and information not only from MTC, but also from an important MTC offshoot, the Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA), which oversees and finances the region's seven state-owned toll bridges.
And that's not all. As shown below, each of our major customer service projects (Clipper electronic transit fare payment, FasTrak® electronic toll collection and the 511 Traveler Information Service) has its own social media presence, including Facebook pages where you can post comments and questions.
MTC also participates in several interagency projects with a social media presence, most notably the One Bay Area regional planning project. The chart below links to our various websites and social media pages. We will be updating this page as we add new services.
