Soon it will cost Seattle residents an extra $20 to register their cars. That’s because the Seattle Transportation Benefit District (TBD) approved the $20 increase last night. The money raised would go toward a $500 million backlog of transportation projects and other improvements.
The City of Spokane has already formed a TBD and there’s an effort in the works to form a countywide TBD. Some people aren’t familiar with them so have been skeptical. Does it give you more faith in a TBD to hear that a large city like Seattle has implemented one?
