We trace our history to a 1900 meeting of car buffs at
San Francisco’s famed Cliff House. Recognizing the need for better
roads, signage and auto-friendly laws, these car owners formed the
Automobile Club of California (ACC) to deal with barriers that hindered
acceptance of the automobile. In 1907, ACC merged into the newly
incorporated California State Automobile Association (CSAA), which
formally affiliated with the American Automobile Association (AAA).
Today, as AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah, we continue to
provide services to millions of Members. And we’re proud to be a
leading advocate for safe and responsible transportation and a provider
of traffic safety education to diverse and underserved communities.

The New Century
In an effort to provide more convenience to Members, we
continued to expand our online presence as we began the new
millennium. In 2000, through a joint effort with the California
Department of Motor Vehicles, we offered Members with AAA
Auto Insurance the convenience of renewing their automobile
registration via the Internet. That year also saw the launch of an
online version of
magazine. And in 2001, we completed a 12-
year effort to digitize our entire library of maps.
Committed as always to developing new ways to help keep our
Members on the road, we launched AAA Battery Service,
providing roadside battery diagnostics and new battery installation
right on the spot.
As a leading advocate for road safety, we responded to the
increasing instances of “road rage” with a survey to help us
identify the region’s “Rudest Roads” and offered instructions on
how to deal with aggressive drivers.
The public’s embrace of environmental concerns grew more
intense as the 2000s continued. In response, we established the
AAA Greenlight
Initiative to help Members make sense of new
alternative fuels and green transportation options.
As the century progresses we continue to look for new ways to
bring value to our Members. And based on our history, we will
never lack for innovation.
