FORT WORTH — The City Council has opened the door to expanded bus service by its decision to consider taking property tax revenues and spending it on public transportation.

Councilwoman Ann Zadeh pressed the issue Tuesday night, saying “fixing the transit system is our job.”

The council voted 6-1 to consider setting the proposed property tax rate for 2018 to 81.5 cents per $100 assessed valuation, which is one cent higher than what’s been proposed.

Zadeh wants the revenue from the penny, or about $5.7 million, to go to the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, or the T. The money would be used to expand and improve services to the city’s west side.
