And to not much surprise, the gas tax passed.
Metro Vancouver mayors passed a $1.24billion transportation plan Friday.
The weighted vote was 81-34 in favour of the TransLink supplement.
Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts was one of the 16 mayors who supported the initiative, which also included Vancouver and Coquitlam mayors.
Richmond and Delta mayors were among the six who opposed the plan.
Starting next April, gas taxes are set to rise two cents a litre.
And residential property taxes could go up by $23 - annually, per home - in 2013-14 if other funding isn't found.
Watts said they are committed to finding funding alternatives.
She would like to consider carbon tax and area benefiting tax.
Watts said it voting in favour of the supplement wasn't an easy decision to make.
"It would be easy just to say forget it, I'm not going to support it, but I know that our kids and our seniors and people that are moving around the region, they need that support," Watts said.
"I wanted to also make sure that we're going to do this before the election. We're not going to wait for the election and then slide something in - that's not fair to the taxpayers either."
