SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) –Measure RR, or Prop RR in San Francisco, would issue $3.5 billion in bonds for BART.

It’s called Measure RR in Alameda and Contra Costa County, while in San Francisco, it’s Prop RR.

The $3.5 billion would go towards repairing and replacing the tracks, tunnels and train systems.

Critics say they’re skeptical about giving BART any more money. They say in the past the agency has given too much money to staff and should be more responsible with the money they’re already collecting.

Those in favor of the measure, however, say this measure stipulates the money has to be used to repair and upgrade the system, something they say is desperately needed.

Measure RR and Prop RR Requires two-thirds approval vote in all three counties to pass.
