Measure M, the Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan, was overwhelmingly approved by voters in 2016. The sales tax initiative generates $860 million a year for major projects over the next 40 years, including expansion of rail and rapid transit, street paving and improved convenience and affordability of public transportation for seniors and the disabled. In North L.A. County, the initiative returned more than $22 million to the four member jurisdictions of NCTC, and more than $5 million for Antelope Valley Transit and Santa Clarita Transit. The local return for the North County will be about $1.4 billion over the next 40 years.
