A half-cent of every dollar spent in Alameda County is directed to funding for transportation capital projects and services for the benefit of County residents and visitors. This sales tax revenue, mandated by Measure B which voters approved in 2000 and took effect in April 2002, is administered by the Alameda County Transportation Commission, in accordance with the associated voter-approved Measure B 2000 Expenditure Plan.
