Community Transit budget documents are provided here to give easy access to important information about agency revenues, expenditures and financial status.
The 2016 Budget was approved by the Board of Directors on December 3, 2015. The outcome of Proposition 1 (the ballot measure to increase sales and use tax to fund expanded transit service), was still unknown during the budget's preparation, so it is based on existing revenue sources to make sure expenditures are covered by revenue sources already in place.
An amended 2016 Budget will be presented to the board later in the year. It will account for the new revenue stream Proposition 1 will bring, as well as outline major service increases for September 2016.
Previous years' financial documents are available below.
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.
