Measure T on Open Space

Measure RR is a regional 1/8 cent sales tax to fund Caltrain, a vital part of the Bay Area. While Caltrain ridership has historically been whiter and wealthier than the corridor it serves, Measure RR would also fund unprecedented equity and connectivity policies and programs that will make Caltrain more accessible to people across the income spectrum, and weave Caltrain more closely into the Bay Area’s local and regional transit network.

Advocates Gear Up to Make Caltrain Awesome


“Measure RR will make sure Caltrain is still there when we all need it. If we don’t support Caltrain now with this new funding source, at the very least it will face an uncertain future and fare increases. With this measure, Caltrain can move forward with increased service throughout the day so it’s not just for commuters, and with its fare assistance and equity programs that will make it more accessible to more riders,” wrote the San Francisco Transit Rider’s Cat Carter, in an email to Streetsblog.

Measure S is a renewal of the parcel tax with no increase. Measure S continues work that’s already being done countywide, like creek restoration, shoreline protection, environmental cleanup and habitat restoration. These projects have been essential to protecting our communities from extended drought, increased pollution and climate change. Measure S would continue until ended by votersAll funds are spent locally in Santa Clara County.

Measure T is a renewal of the Measure Q annual parcel tax with no increase. Measure T would continue until ended by votersAll funds are spent in the cities of San Jose, Milpitas, Santa Clara, Campbell, Morgan Hill, and the unincorporated portions of Santa Clara County.
