Measure B Funding
Alameda County Measure B / Measure BB
In 2000, Alameda County voters approved Measure B, the half-cent transportation sales tax and an accompanying 20-year expenditure plan. Alameda CTC administers Measure B funds to deliver transportation improvements and services in Alameda County and to address congestion in each major commute corridor in the county. Measure B funds are allocated annually to support the Alameda ferry services. On November 4, 2014 Alameda County voters approved Measure BB, a 30-year Transportation Expenditure Plan, which extends the existing 0.5 % Measure B sales tax, scheduled to terminate on March 31, 2022. Measure BB also augments the tax by 0.5% and dedicates the full 1% to transportation expenses. Measure BB will expire in 2045 without voter renewal.
From July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2025, a total of $7.8 million of these funds are anticipated to be used to support operation of the Alameda Harbor Bay and Alameda Main Street ferries. In addition, during the same period, $4.5 million Measure B and Measure BB funds will be used for capital projects for these services.
