Measure M is Metro’s sales tax ballot measure that would raise the countywide sales tax by a half cent and continue the Measure R half-cent sales tax beyond its expiration date in mid-2039. The sales tax revenues would be used to fund a number of highway, transit, pedestrian and biking projects, as well as provide funds to local cities for their own transportation projects.
