The Capital Area Transit System board is seeking voter approval for a 3.5-mill property tax that would generate $10.8 million a year to support the bus system. It does not have a dedicated property tax millage or other revenue stream and has been struggling financially. If approved, it would nearly double the current $12.5 million budget of the Capital Area Transit System
