Yellow Bus agency gets budget boost from transit tax, state

An infusion of more than $300,000 in state reimbursements and county transit taxes will power the Yellow Bus Challenge into the next fiscal year, allowing Tiburon and Belvedere to shed about $130,000 in taxpayer subsidies for the traffic-busting school-bus program.


The governing Tiburon Peninsula Traffic Relief Joint Powers Authority board voted 4-0 on June 11 to approve its $926,000 fiscal year 2024-2025 budget, with a $58,000 surplus on about $984,000 of projected revenue.
