Transit proves it is a WINNER in 2012

By a passage rate of nearly 70 percent (68.4%), voters across the country continued a track record of success for pro-transit measures as 13 of 19 local public transit-related ballot initiatives were approved on November 6. Adding these results to a total of earlier transit measures that took place this year, 46 out of 58 pro-transit measures have passed in 2012 at a rate of 79.3 percent. These numbers reflect a long-term trend — since the year 2000, more than 70 percent of public transit ballot measures have successfully passed.
