About Measure R

In November 2008, Measure R was approved by an amazing two-thirds majority vote, committing a projected $40 billion to traffic relief and transportation upgrades throughout the county over the next 30 years.

Measure R will help fund dozens of critical transit and highway projects, create more than 210,000 new construction jobs and infuse an estimated $32 billion back into the local economy, according to estimates by the nonprofit Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation.

What is Measure R?

Measure R passed in November 2008, providing the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) with a potential $40 billion in revenue to support improving transportation and transit in the Los Angeles basin. Funds from Measure R, which will be provided through a ½¢ increase in sales tax, will allow MTA to fund a number of projects over the 30 year period that the measure is in effect. The MTA Board directed MTA leadership to accelerate the delivery of a prioritized set of these projects from 30 years to 10 years, which is described in a Measure R 30/10 Transit and Accelerated Highway Program.
