Measure K is aimed at remedying the existing over $7.0 billion deficiency in transportation funding in San Joaquin County while promoting improved air quality. It also mandates local development fees and regional growth coordination. The Plan calls for street repairs, safety and operational improvements on local streets and roads, projects to

reduce congestion on streets and highways, passenger rail and bus service to provide alternatives to the car and improve the air quality of the San Joaquin Valley, and separation of streets from railroads at designated crossings to improve safety. 

The categorical allocations of Measure K include:
  • local street repairs and roadway safety (35%)
  • congestion relief projects (32.5%)
  • railroad crossing safety projects (2.5%)
  • passenger rail, bus, and bicycles (30%)
    (includes dedicated funding for bus rapid transit
    and safe routes to schools)

Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Safe Routes to School (BP-SRTS)

The plan aims to increase commuter walking and bicycling, and support active and safe transportation to and from school.

During the first 20-year Measure K program, approximately $7.6 million in Measure K funds were awarded to bicycle projects throughout San Joaquin County. These projects included improving existing bicycle facilities and/or planning, developing, and construction new facilities. In November 2006, San Joaquin County voters approved the renewal of the Measure K for an additional 30 years. The renewal also expanded the existing Bicycle Funding Program to include pedestrian and safe routes to school projects. 

Measure K funding for the BP-SRTS program is derived from 7% of the total Transit Category Funding, which represents 30% of the entire Measure K program. Of the funds available, 60% will be programmed through a competitive process and the remaining non-competitive 40% of funds will be made available for project delivery per a population based formula by individual jurisdiction. 

The first Measure K Renewal BP-SRTS projects are anticipated to be identified through the 2012 Regional Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Safe Routes to School Master Plan
