City leaders will consider buying more bus service with money from the 2010 voter-approved sales tax increase, although they don't yet know which areas the buses will serve.
The citywide Transportation Benefit District, which is governed by the City Council wearing a different hat, used the two-tenths of 1 percent sales tax increase approved in November 2010 to restore Sunday bus service earlier this year. Money from the tax also goes to boost the city's annual street repaving budget and to pay for pedestrian and bicycle projects.
