Truck Management Plan
The West Oakland Truck Management Plan (TMP) is an action-based plan designed to reduce the effects of transport trucks on local streets in West Oakland. The TMP was approved by the City and the Port in April, 2019. When the TMP is implemented, the West Oakland community should experience fewer trucks driving or parking where they should not be, improved safety for people walking, biking, and driving in West Oakland, and an overall improvement in the quality of life for people living and working in West Oakland.

Approved by the City and the Port in April, 2019, the West Oakland Truck Management Plan (TMP) is an action-based plan designed to reduce the effects of transport trucks on local streets in West Oakland.

The goals of the TMP are:
• Reduce disruptions from truck circulation and truck parking on residents and businesses in West Oakland.
• Increase safety along designated truck routes.
• Have truck drivers know preferred routes to reach their destinations and know the City’s parking restrictions.
• Monitor TMP implementation and modify implementation Strategies to improve outcomes as needed.
Implementation of the TMP is anticipated to take five years; refer to Chapter III of the TMP for more information about implementation.
