Gas Tax Stays, More Transportation Funding On the Way


While still too close to officially call, over two out of three voters agree on a half cent sales tax measure that would fund County transportation needs through the passage of Measure W. Nearly 7 out of 10 San Mateo voters overwhelmingly voted to affirm last year’s gas tax increase as Proposition 6 was defeated at the polls this month. Regardless of the official outcome of Measure W, residents voted to ensure that healthy mobility options such as transit and walking and biking to school are available for all San Mateo residents.
