The Phoenix Citizen’s Transit Commission was established in 2000 as part of a tax referendum to institute a 4/10 cent sales tax in Phoenix to pay for transit improvements. The measure also created a citizen oversight committee to monitor transit expenditures, with the Mayor and City Council Members appointing members to the commission.
