How Do We Pay

The Mayors’ Council Vision identifies new investments that will reduce existing congestion as well as the impact of the one million new residents who are expected to join the region over the next 30 years.

The new revenue needed to implement the Vision will ramp up over the next decade as projects come online. By 2025, an estimated $390 million (2015 dollars) in new funding will be needed each year.
