Intercity Transit Eyes the ballot box

The Olympian today has a story about the possibility of Intercity Transit going to ballot to increase their sales tax rate in 2010. Just like many other transit agencies IT is seeing increasing ridership (19% between '07 and '08) and declining sales tax revenues. Right now they are at .6% sales tax so they have another .3% taxing authority available to them if approved by the voters. As many agencies try to stave of service cuts, I don't think this will be the last time we'll here of pending transit ballot measures in the next two years.
