Wednesday, April 11, 2018

A June ballot measure to be voted on in the nine counties of the Bay Area will help address the region’s air quality, congestion, and transportation needs. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the state legislature worked to place the measure on the ballot, which will raise bridge toll revenue to finance $4.45 billion in transportation improvements, including:

  • $500 million for new BART cars

  • $150 million for the San Francisco Bay Trail and Safe Routes to Transit

  • $90 million for Capitol Corridor Amtrak improvements

  • $50 million to upgrade the Clipper system
