What is 2016 Measure B

Santa Clara County voters have approved 2016 Measure B, a 30-year, half-cent countywide sales tax to enhance transit, highways, expressways and active transportation (bicycles, pedestrians and complete streets). A countywide sales tax provides a local revenue source that can be leveraged to help obtain additional funds through regional, state and federal fund sources. The measure passed by nearly 72%, the highest level of support for any Santa Clara County transportation tax. Collection of the tax began on April 1, 2017.
