The analysis was overseen by the Regional Airport Planning Committee, made up of representatives from MTC, the Association of Bay Area Governments and the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC).
The new plan updates the Airport Element of MTC's Regional Transportation Plan and will be used by the BCDC in considering possible proposals to extend existing runways or construct new runways in the Bay.
The report is in four volumes:
