The proposed $3 million levy had 58 percent approval.
It is intended to pay for at least 30 new buses. These buses include specially equipped buses for students in wheelchairs and with other special needs.
This was the first time in two decades the Mukilteo School District had asked voters to help pay for buses.
The levy would cost an estimated 26.5 cents per $1,000 of assessed value, or $106 on a $400,000 home.
Since the district has paid off most of another voter-approved bond, the total tax rate would drop by about $60 for the owner of a $400,000 home.
Mukilteo has 105 buses in its fleet. More than one-quarter of those were built before 1997. Fourteen of them are at least 20 years old.
The buses would be purchased in two phases over two years.
