The State of California, Department of Transportation (Caltrans) owns property in the 9 Bay Area Counties* and many of these properties are available for rent.
The majority of our rentable property consists of single family homes and apartments in the Hayward/Castro Valley area of Alameda County and we often have vacancies available.
However, we are purchasing a number of additional properties in the City of San Rafael (Marin County) which will soon be available for rent. Look for these listings in the near future.
Occasionally we have vacant, agricultural/grazing land for lease. We also have business and/or commercial rentals available, but this is rare.
All of our vacancies are posted on our web-site but hard copies of our lists are also available by contacting our offices in Oakland.
Caltrans has owned much of our property for many years, usually in anticipation of building a facility (freeway/highway) in the area at some future date.
Sometimes these properties are surplus to our needs and will eventually be sold. However, the majority are being held for our future projects.
Renting from Caltrans is like renting from any other landlord. We charge fair market rent for our properties and you must qualify financially in order to be considered as a tenant.
*9 Bay Area Counties = Alameda, Contra Costa, Sonoma, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, Napa.
