Measure R passed in 2008 to fund transportation projects and programs.
What is Measure R?
A two-thirds majority of LA County voters approved the Measure R half-cent sales tax in 2008 to finance new transportation projects and programs, and accelerate those already in the pipeline.
The Measure R Expenditure Plan devotes its funds to seven transportation categories: 35% to new rail and bus rapid transit projects; 3% to Metrolink projects; 2% to Metro Rail system improvement projects; 20% to carpool lanes, highways and other highway related improvements; 5% to rail operations; 20% to bus operations; and 15% for Local Return programs.
