Tired of Traffic? Ballot Measures Are on the Horizon


The Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s (MTC) and the Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) approved adding Regional Measure 3 (RM-3) to the ballot for June 5, 2018. This measure will increase bridge tolls by $1 on the Bay Area’s seven state-owned toll bridges in 2019, with additional $1 increases in 2022 and 2025. The total of the $3 increase would increase funding for numerous public transportation improvements, including BART, Caltrain, Muni and other projects throughout the Bay Area.

Led by SamTrans with the support of the County Board of Supervisors, local leaders recently completed a series of town hall meetings throughout the county to hear from community members about their transportation needs. Officials continue to gauge local support for proposing a November 2018 ballot measure to secure a half-cent sales tax to fund transportation improvements. The campaign identified as Get Us Moving San Mateo is also soliciting feedback online. Have your voice be heard!
