As part of the Nov. 8 ballot, Los Angeles County voters will be considering Measure M, a half-cent sales tax increase and extension of the Measure R half-cent tax beyond 2039 to pay for transit, highway, walking, biking and other transportation projects. Both taxes would continue in perpetuity or until voters decide to end them.
Metro has produced fact sheets that show the projects and programs in Measure M’s spending plan for each of the nine subregions of the county. Among the major projects for the area around downtown Los Angeles that Measure M would help fund are a potential light rail line between Union Station and Artesia, bus rapid transit along Vermont Avenue, a northern extension of the Crenshaw/LAX Line and the downtown Los Angeles streetcar.
