2000 Measure A Transit Improvement Program

In November 2000, the voters in Santa Clara County approved Measure A, a 30-year half cent sales tax devoted to specified public transit capital improvement projects and operations. Measure A passed by a 70.3 percent majority vote.

The Measure A ballot listed 14 specific projects or project areas:

The 2000 Measure A ballot also specified the following mandatory requirements:

  • The sales tax would end 30 years after implementation.
  • An independent Citizens Watchdog Committee of private citizens, not elected officials, who comprise VTA's Citizens Advisory Committee, would, among other duties, review all expenditures and issue reports to Santa Clara County residents on how the funds are being spent.

Collection of the 2000 Measure A sales tax began on April 1, 2006 and will continue through March 31, 2036. The VTA Board of Directors is responsible for implementation of the 2000 Measure A Program and for all policy-related decisions including the composition, implementation schedule and funding level of projects.
