Sales Taxes Support Transit

Community Transit's primary funding comes from a voter-approved 0.9 percent sales tax within our service district. That’s 9 cents of every $10 taxable purchase that comes to Community Transit. 

Sales tax revenue usually accounts for 65 to 70 percent of Community Transit’s operating budget. Rider fares account for about 20-25 percent of the operating budget, and grants, advertising and interest make up the remainder of operating revenues.
