Proposition L – Continue the Existing Sales Tax for Public Transportation

San Francisco

We need smoother and safer streets, on-time and reliable transit, and alternatives to driving that can help reduce the emissions that cause global warming.

Prop L continues an existing one-half cent sales tax through 2053 for transportation project funding and allows the Transportation Authority to issue up to $1.91 billion in bonds for transportation projects to be repaid with proceeds from the tax. Prop L is supported by first responders who rely on well-maintained streets to save lives, by Muni, BART and Caltrain riders, bicyclists, Muni drivers, and advocates for pedestrian safety, seniors and people with disabilities.

Admittedly, this is a regressive way to raise funds, and we would prefer for public transportation to be fully funded. However, our communities have long suffered from unfair tax rules that favor millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations. That’s why we support fair, equitable taxes — for budgets that will fully and reliably ensure our children will inherit quality public education and public services, no matter what they look like or where they come from. In the meantime, we need to ensure that our communities have access to the resources they need, and this sales tax is a necessary step to do that.
