Measure W Passes, Raising $80 Million a Year for Transportation

November 29, 2018 · 

After weeks of counting votes for an unprecedented midterm election turnout, it appears that San Mateo’s transportation tax, Measure W, has passed by a razor-thin margin. The measure will generate $80 million per year in sales tax revenue for the next 30 years to improve public transit, create safer bike and pedestrian routes, reduce traffic, repair roads and address other urgent community needs.
