Kristen Price Free Images

2016 was a historic year for transit ballot measures!  With 78 measures on ballots in 26 states nationwide, this year represents the largest number of transit measures on record.  While these measures can take different forms, the vast majority were either sales tax or property tax measures. 71 percent of transit measures in the US passed in 2016, showing continued strong support for investment in mass transit.

The center for Transportation Excellence provides an extensive accounting of what the initiatives were, where they were and how they fared.
