The mission of the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) is to develop and coordinate the policies and programs of the state’s transportation entities to achieve California’s mobility, safety and air quality objectives.
The California State Transportation Agency is led by Secretary Brian P. Kelly.
The agency was created in July 1, 2013 by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.’s government reorganization plan. CalSTA is a narrowing down of the old Business, Transportation, and Housing Agency (BTH), allowing for a more direct focus on the important transportation issues that face our great state.
The following transportation-related entities fall under CalSTA:
California Highway Patrol
California Department of Transportation
Department of Motor Vehicles
California High-Speed Rail Authority
Office of Traffic Safety
California Transportation Commission
Board of Pilot Commissioners
New Motor Vehicle Board
