This measure sought to increase the sales and use tax within the transportation area by two-tenths of one percent in order to better pay for services offered by the authority especially those riders with disabilities.[2] Although residents in the area are struggling with taxes, a vote in favor of this measure had been encouraged by area officials because so many are dependent on the services and reducing them would have made transportation harder for those already struggling.[3]
