Measure M would create a dramatically improved transportation system to redefine commutes for residents in every corner of the county to get all of us where we want to go, when we want to get there, however we choose to travel.
SBAOR urges voters in Los Angeles County to vote YES on Measure M, a half-cent sales tax to fund LA County’s Traffic Improvement Plan.
Measure M would also extend Measure R, approved by voters in 2008. If Measure M wins a two-thirds majority vote in November it would provide approximately $120 billion over 40 years to significantly expand the rail transit system and support the bus system all over LA County, as well as provide first and last mile connections to stations for people on foot and on bike and users of all ages and abilities.
Measure M will cost on average less than 9 cents a day per person and will create one of the most advanced transportation systems in the U.S. Because a 1/4 cent of the State’s sales tax expires in Dec 2016, consumers will only see a 1/4 cent rise in sales tax as a result of Measure M.
