Year 3 Annual Report

In 2014, Seattle voters approved Proposition 1 to fund the purchase of increased Metro service and additional transit programs for Seattle residents. This voter-approved funding measure includes a $60 vehicle license fee and 0.1% sales tax increase to generate over $50 million (in 2017) to improve transit availability and access for six years (2015-2020).

In the the third year of the program, we’ve increased the availability of frequent transit throughout the city, expanded the distribution of free or discounted ORCA Cards to students and low-income families, and increased the ways in which funding can be utilized to improved transit service and access.
