How San Francisco’s transit ballot measures fared in this election


Here’s how the transit ballot measures and BART Board of Director’s races fared (data according to SFGate):

  • Prop L (PDF), which would have shifted three of seven MTA Board appointments from the Mayor to the Board of Supervisors: failed

    I think the Examiner’s headline said it best, “People want better Muni but refuse to pay for it.” (Yes on J and No on K.)
