The SMART, San Miguel Authority for Regional Transportation, ballot initiative to create a regional transportation authority, which can include bus service, shuttles, trails, roads, and related transit infrastructure, such as park-and-ride and parking lots, was passed November 8, 2016.

Approval of the SMART ballot measure created a new special Regional Transit Authority, similar to our local school, library, fire, and hospital districts. The SMART Board of Directors is made up of elected officials from San Miguel County, Telluride, and Mountain Village. Citizens and business stakeholders are encouraged to participate on SMART advisory committees.

SMART is funded through a combination of:

  • 0.25% sales tax on all purchases with the exception of residential utilities and food for home consumption (1 cent on every $4)
  • 0.75 mill levy property tax ($6 per $100,000 residential property value)
