AC Transit Parcel Tax Extension
(requires 66.6667% “yes” votes to pass)
The way it is now:
In 2002, voters passed a measure that established a parcel tax of $24 per year to help pay for AC Transit bus service. In 2004, voters passed a measure that increased the parcel tax to $48 per year. In 2008, voters passed a measure that increased the parcel tax to $96 per year. The parcel tax is scheduled to expire in 2019.
What Measure C1 would do:
Measure C1 would extend the $96 parcel tax until 2039. Parcel tax funds would continue to be audited every year. A citizens’ oversight committee would continue to make sure the money is used correctly.
Property owners would pay $96 per parcel for every year from 2019 to 2039. AC Transit would get about $30 million per year.
People for Measure C1 say:
• AC Transit needs this funding to provide reliable service. • AC Transit needs this funding to continue providing reduced fares and transportation options for youth, seniors, and people with disabilities.
People against Measure C1 say:
• No arguments against Measure C1 have been put forward.
