Regional Measure 3: Bay Area Toll Increase to be considered by CA State legislature and Bay Area voters

TAM Identifies Marin Projects for Potential Future Bridge Toll Funding

Transportation Authority of Marin has identified a suite of projects to be considered for potential future toll revenue funding.

In December, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, MTC, announced their intent to pursue legislation in 2017 allowing them to place a measure on the ballot in 2018 to increase tolls Bay Area toll bridges to fund transportation projects. The toll increase would require a 50% approval by voters. Projects funded by the toll revenue must show a nexus – a benefit – to the toll bridge users who pay the fee.

MTC is determining what Bay Area projects would be funded by the toll revenue, beyond bridge maintenance and operations. TAM and other county Congestion Management Agency have submitted candidate projects.
