  2. Research Objectives • Broaden Transportation 2030 Plan outreach to entire region • Identify transportation programs of greatest importance to voters & residents • Explore attitudes related to transportation and land use, including housing/commute trade-offs • Measure support for a regional gas tax and county half-cent sales taxes

  3. Methodology • Technique Telephone interviewing • Interview Length 15 minutes • Universe 3,112,766 registered voters • Universe 5,181,902 adult residents • Field Dates September 5th to 21st, 2003 • Sample Size n=3,600 (2,700 voters, 900 residents) • Margin of Error +/- 1.87% (voters) +/- 3.27% (residents)

  13. Housing & Commute Tradeoff – Bay Area vs. Southern CA

  14. Transportation and Land Use Authority

  15. Support for the County Half-Cent Sales Tax (Margin of Error at the County +/- 5.7%)

  16. Conclusions I • Transportation issues in middle tier of importance, (after ‘public education’, ahead of ‘housing’) • ‘Transit for low-income communities’ and ‘maintain local streets and roads’ top Operation & Maintenance priorities • ‘Expand BART’ and ‘widen freeways’ most popular expansion projects • Respondents favor regional-level transportation planning, but local land-use authority

  17. Conclusions II • Some support (46%) for a regional gas tax, but not enough to clear 2/3 majority vote hurdle • Support for half-cent sales taxes for transportation ranged from 62% to 83% in six counties polled • Bay Area residents show greater willingness than Southern Californians to forgo larger home for shorter commute
