In 2001 the voters of Boulder County passed a ballot issue that allowed for a 0.1 percent (one cent on a $10 purchase) countywide transportation sales tax. In 2007, voters approved an extension of the sales tax through 2024.
The Transportation Sales Tax helps fund:
- Roadway improvements
- Priority transit programs
- Pollution reduction
- Congestion reduction
- Efficiency of alternative modes and traffic flows
- Road widening projects
- Addition of shoulders appropriate for cycling where approved
- Repair and construction of roads and bridges
