Measure A

Since 1988, when San Mateo County voters passed Measure A by 61.7%, the San Mateo County Transportation Authority (TA) has worked to improve transit and relieve traffic congestion.The measure was reauthorized by San Mateo County voters in 2004 by 75.3%.

The reauthorized measure, which went into effect in 2009, includes funds for more local community shuttle service, railroad/street grade separations, ferry service to South San Francisco and Redwood City, and a major infusion of tax dollars for pedestrian and bicycle projects.

The TA Strategic Plan guides the evaluation of projects that use this funding. You can read more about the 2020-2024 plan, which was developed through a series of community meetings held throughout the county.
