Traffic-fighting school-bus program gets big boost from Marin Transit
The Tiburon Peninsula’s Yellow Bus Challenge is getting a long-awaited financial boost from Marin Transit, courtesy of a half-cent sales tax renewed by county voters last November. The cash infusion is a victory for local officials who have been fighting for new sources of funding the four-year-old traffic-busting program, which is largely subsidized by Tiburon and Belvedere taxpayers.
The transit agency will allocate $135,877 annually to the local program for three years beginning in fiscal year 2019-2020, which starts this July, and continuing through fiscal 2021-2022. That amounts to about a third of the total funding currently coming out of Tiburon’s and Belvedere’s annual municipal budgets and would reduce those contributions.
