San Diego MTS Transit Ballot Measure Planning

The San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) is currently planning for a potential sales tax proposition in the November 2020 election that would dramatically expand the agency’s budget and pay for much-needed transit improvements in San Diego and surrounding cities. TMD has been working with MTS since 2018 to develop and refine a program of projects for the potential ballot measure and to analyze the associated operating and capital costs, infrastructure needs, ridership and greenhouse gas reductions, and budget impacts. Combined with MTS’s robust public outreach and engagement process, TMD’s work is helping to strengthen the chances of the potential measure’s success and guide the region toward a dedicated new funding stream for bold transit improvements that will benefit public mobility in San Diego for generations to come.
