Survey of State Funding for Public Transportation

April 2015

Dear Reader,
The AASHTO Standing Committee on Public Transportation is pleased to release the 33rd compila-
tion of the Survey of State Funding for Public Transportation. The survey results reflect FY 2013 data.
This annual report provides a snapshot of state-by-state investment in public transportation. A compari-
son of state and Federal funding for public transportation, an overview of state transit programs, revenue
sources, and eligible uses for state transit funding as well as the numerous tables and charts enable the
reader to understand how different funding and tax mechanisms are used in each state to support transit
operations and capital projects.
AASHTO supports continued investment in public transportation with a goal of doubling transit
ridership to 20 billion trips by 2035. Our goals also include: improving public transportation capacity to
meet mobility needs, doubling rural transit funding, and restoring the bus/bus facility program in the next
reauthorization bill. Public transportation is essential to moving people in both urban and rural areas and
is a critical part of the nation’s multimodal transportation system. Public transportation also provides basic
mobility options for elderly individuals, individuals with disabilities, and low-income individuals. Public
transportation continues to play a significant role in state and national efforts to mitigate traffic conges-
tion, conserve fuel, enhance the efficiency of highway transportation, address air quality issues, and support
security and emergency preparedness activities. As our nation’s population is expected to top 400 million
by 2050 and the population of seniors is expected to slightly more than double by that time, our member
departments of transportation must continue to provide public transportation as a mobility option.
Historical funding patterns demonstrate the important role that state departments of transportation ful-
fill in public transportation finance and administration and the results you see in the Survey of State Fund-
ing for Public Transportation reflect this ongoing commitment. State DOTS spent approximately $16.3 bil-
lion on transit in FY 2013, which is an increase over the past five years from the $13.1 billion which states
sent in FY 2009. It’s important that these investments continue in order to grow our public transportation
system.
The Survey of State Funding for Public Transportation is viewed by the public transportation industry, na-
tional associations, and Federal and state governments as one of the most comprehensive resources on state
involvement in public transportation. On behalf of the Standing Committee on Public Transportation, we
would like to thank the AASHTO member departments for completing the survey. We hope you find this
report a useful reference as you continue to support public transportation in your state.

Funding—FY 2013
This report, the 33rd compilation of information on state funding for public transportation, was
prepared under the auspices of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation
Officials (AASHTO).

 State Funding of Public Transit

Table 1-1 (on the next page) shows that state funding for public transit for the past five years has
steadily increased from $13.6 billion in FY 2009 to $16.3 billion in FY 2013.

Twenty-six states increased their public transit funding by a total of $2.167 billion over FY 2012
levels (see Table 1-2) including California up $1.19 billion, Maryland up $435 million,
New Jersey up $158 million, and Massachusetts up $147 million. Five DOTs account for 92
percent of all state funding: California, Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and
Pennsylvania. Nine states showed a decline in funding and 16 showed no change in funding
levels, including four states that do not fund public transit.

 Comparing State and Federal Funding of Public Transit
In FY 2013, states provided $16.3 billion in transit funding, while Federal funds totaled $10.1 billion.
Figure 1-1 shows the total of state and Federal transit funding for each of the 51 DOTs surveyed. The
figure shows that there is a strong relationship between state and Federal funding. Specifically the
seven states with the largest state funding amounts—New York, California, Maryland,
Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Illinois—collectively allotted $13.5 billion in state
funding. About $5.3 billion—more than half of all Federal funds spent on transit—went to these
seven states. The remaining 40 states allotted a total of $2.8 billion in state funding and shared about
$4.9 billion in Federal funds. The difference between the relatively low percentage of Federal
funding used by the selected larger states, compared to the larger percentage of Federal funding
used by the other smaller states, is largely the result of the Federal formula used to annually
apportion available Federal funding.

The strong relationship between state and Federal funding is, in large part, a function of state
population served and for this reason, the relationship is not always apparent. Population is a factor

in the allocation of Federal funds, so that, even without significant state investment, a state can
receive a significant amount of Federal funds. For example, as shown in Table 1-3, Texas—with a
population 26.5 million—invested $31.9 million in state funds in FY 2013 and received $658 million
in Federal funds. In contrast, Tennessee invested more state funds than Texas, $40 million, but with
a much smaller population of 6.5 million, received only $81.8 million in Federal funds. It is also
important to note that without comparable information on local transit funding per state, a complete
picture is not possible.

Note: Data for Federal funding is from the Federal Transit Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.

„ State Transit Programs across the United States


In FY 2013, 51 DOTs responded to the survey. Information on sources of funding, eligible uses
of funds, and methods of distribution are summarized.

Sources of State Funds (Table 1-4)

The most frequently mentioned sources for transit funding used by states were general funds
(reported by 16 states) and gas taxes (reported by 13 states), followed by registration/license/
title fees (8 states), bond proceeds (7 states), general sales tax (7 states), State Transportation
Funds (7 states), interest income (6 states) motor vehicle/rental car sales tax (5 states), trust
funds (3 states), and lottery (2 states).

Twenty-three states reported that they used other sources for funding such as miscellaneous
revenues, fees, or taxes documentary stamps and other types of assessments. Seven of these 25
states relied solely (100 percent of transit dollars) on these miscellaneous revenue sources.

Approximately 50 percent of the states have constitutional restrictions on using selected


automobile-related taxes and fees (such as gas taxes, vehicle registration fees, etc.) to fund
public transportation. This fact should be taken into account in determining appropriate
“peers,” and in making comparisons of funding sources with other states.*

Eligible Uses for State Transit Funding (Table 1-5)

Of the 51 DOTs that responded to the survey, four reported not providing state funding for
transit in FY 2013. Of those programs providing state transit funding, 32 states reported specific
funding amounts for capital expenditures accounting for 21.4 percent of all transit funding.
Thirty-five states reported specific funding amounts for operating expenditures accounting for
70.3 percent of transit funding 19 states reported funding amounts that were not restricted in
their use (7.7 percent), and six states reported funding for miscellaneous activities accounting
for 0.7 percent of transit funding.

Changes in State Transit Funding (Table 1-6)

Table 1-6 shows changes in funding levels between FY 2009 and FY 2013 using two measures:
(1) percent change in total funding and (2) percent change in per capita funding. The former
measure simply computes the difference in raw funding amounts reported over the two years
as a percentage. The latter measure is more useful when making historical comparisons across
states because it relates population increase to changes in funding levels over time and thereby
“normalizes” the effect of varied population growth rates of individual states. Both measures
are roughly similar in raw figures (for instance, a 24 percent increase in reported total funding
and a related 21 percent increase in per capita funding), but they are not identical. Percent
changes in per capita funding may either lag or exceed percent changes in total funding, thereby
creating a different portrait of state funding activity.

Changes in overall state funding since FY2009 for participants in the most recent survey have
shown a rather wide variance. In FY 2013, 25 states showed increases in both total and per
capita funding ranging from a total funding increase of 125 percent for Alaska (corresponding to
a 113 percent increase for per capita funding) to an increase of 1.3 percent in total funding and a
0.5 percent increase in per capita funding for Maine. (Note: in FY2009 Nevada did not provide
state transit funding but in FY2013, they provided $37,501 in funding for state transit programs
resulting in a 100 percent increase in funding).

Four states showed an increase in total funding but a very slight decrease in per capita funding
(less than two percent). Three states showed virtually no change in total funding and less than
five percent decrease in per capita funding. Fifteen states showed decreases in both total
funding and per capita funding ranging from a drop of 0.2 percent for Louisiana (with a
corresponding drop of 3.1 percent in per capita funding) to a 94 percent drop in funding for
New Hampshire (with a corresponding 94 percent drop in per capita funding).

Total State and Per Capita Funding

A snapshot of all states surveyed in the FY 2013 effort, shown in Table 1-7, reveals that total
transit funding by state varies widely across the nation, ranging from zero dollars in funding to
$4.465 billion. Four states—Alabama, Arizona, Hawaii, and Utah—did not fund transit at the
state level. On the other hand, states such as New York, California, Maryland, Massachusetts,
Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, among others, have made large state investments in transit
ranging from $1 billion to $4.465 billion.

Table 1-7 shows state funding ranked by total funding levels. Table 1-8 shows state funding
ranked by per capita funding levels. Fifteen states reported per capita funding between $27 and
$700, whereas the remaining 32 states reported from $0.01 per capita to about $18 per capita.

States that operate transit usually provide significantly higher per-capita funds than those that
do not. Figure 1- shows that six states that operate transit—indicated by the large diamonds—
provided significantly higher funding than states with similar population levels. The “state”
that provided the highest level of per capita funding is DC but its totals are artificially high
because the DC metro system also serves Virginia and Maryland—a population much larger
than that of the District. For that reason, DC is not included in Figure 1-2.

Note: For both Tables 1-7 and 1-8

x Alabama, Arizona, Hawaii, and Utah did not fund transit.


x The District of Columbia per capita figure is artificially high. Washington Metropolitan Area
Transit Authority (WMATA) extends well beyond the District boundaries into Maryland and
Virginia, and therefore serves a population much larger than that of the District. Per capita figure
is calculated only for District investment per District resident population.

Total Transit Systems, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, and Types of Local Funding
by State

Of the 47 DOTs who provide state funding for public transit, 45 provided information on the number of
transit systems in their state and the number of MPOs. States with the highest number of transit systems
include:
California 131
Georgia 127
New York 114

Information on Non-Transit Specific State and Federal Programs

Transit agencies in some states receive funding from other non-transit specific state or Federal programs
such as Medicaid, Aging, or Workforce Development programs. This additional funding may support
client-based transportation only but the funding might be a significant source of revenue for local transit
services. States were given the opportunity to identify whether or not their state received this type of
funding and whether or not the state could provide state-level data on those funds.

Only 40 of the 51 DOTs responded to the questions. Twenty-eight indicated that their states do receive
this type of client-based transportation funding while 12 states did not. Of the 28 states who indicated
that they receive client-based transportation funding, 18 states indicated that their state could provide
state-level data on those funds and 12 states said they could not (most frequently mentioning the amount
of time that would be involved).

Characteristics of State Funding for
Public Transportation

„ Methodology

This section presents major details of FY 2013 funding programs for each of the 51
DOTs who responded to the survey.

Survey packets were sent to all 50 state DOTs and the District of Columbia DOT
the week of August 25, 2014. Packets included the survey form with data from FY
2012 entered into the appropriate boxes and instructions for completing the new
survey format. Through email and telephone follow-ups, eventually all 51 DOTs
submitted their updated information and data collection was terminated on
December 31, 2014. A report of results was submitted to AASHTO in February
2015.

The following basic information was solicited from each state:

x Number and Types of Transit Systems


x Number of Metropolitan Planning Organizations
x Sources of Local Transit Funding
x Sources of State Transit Funds. What state taxes or revenues are used to support
transit?
x Transit Program Structure and Characteristics. What is the focus of discrete
funding programs?
x Eligible Uses of Funds. For what purposes are funds provided?
x Distributions Methods. What factors are used in allocating funds to what
recipients?

Note: Most states operate on a fiscal year of July 2012 to June 2013. Per capita costs
for each state were calculated using the U.S. Census State Population Data
(NST-EST2010-01) for July 1, 2013, which was released in December 2014.

FY2013 Michigan State Transit Funding: Overview


(FY 2013 for Michigan is October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013)

Total State Transit Funding $271,830,940

Description of state funding sources:


The Comprehensive Transportation Fund (CTF) receives up to 10% of the Michigan Transportation Fund
(MTF) after certain deductions. This is effectively a little over 8% of the MTF. The MTF revenue sources
include fuel taxes, state vehicle registration fees, and miscellaneous revenue. The CTF also receives up to
25% of 4% of the sales tax on automotive related items. Historically, the sales tax is roughly one-third, and
the MTF two-thirds, of the CTF revenue. In FY2013, CTF funds put under contract (less funds for freight
rail and port programs) totaled $237,918,062. (This includes $10,426 from a CTF "subfund".) Additionally,
$10,912,878 of CTF bond proceeds, and $23,000,000 of General Fund monies were put under contract.

Description of major changes in state funding within the last year:


An additional $18,750,000 of CTF funds were appropriated for the Rail Passenger program near the end
of FY2011. These funds were not put under contract until FY2012 and FY2013 and were not included in
the FY2011 survey. In FY2012, $14,780,503 of those funds were put under contract and were included
in the FY2012 survey. The remainder of those funds, $3,969,497 were put under contract in FY2013 and
are included in this survey.
There was one-time appropriation of $23,000,000 in General Fund monies appropriated for these
programs in FY2013. Of this amount, $12.0 M was for Federal Aid Match for Transit Capital, and $11.0
M for Federal Aid Match for Rail Operations and Infrastructure. Also, in FY2012, MDOT began
collecting fees for maintenance from intercity carriers that lease MDOT facilities. The fee revenue is
restricted and is used for maintenance of those facilities. In FY2013, $10,426 of these funds were
encumbered.

The funding provided above should only include funding meant to support
transit services that are open to the general public. It can include funding for
transit services that are targeted to specific populations, such as the elderly,
but the services are also open to the general public.

Transit agencies in some states receive funding from other non-transit specific
state or federal programs, such as Medicaid, Aging or Workforce
Development programs. This additional funding may support client-based
transportation only but the funding might be a significant source of revenue for
local transit services.
Does your state receive this type of client-based transportation
funding? YES NO
If asked in the future, could your state provide state-level data
on these funds? YES NO

FY2013 Oregon State Transit Funding: Overview


(FY 2013 for Oregon is July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013)

Total State Transit Funding $40,394,560

Description of state funding sources:


Described in program material. Interest is earned from the Special Transportation Fund. Oregon has
constitutional limitation on the use of highway gas tax and does not have sales tax so revenue sources
are limited. Lottery funds, Bonding, cigarette tax, income tax and ID fees are opportunities.

Description of major changes in state funding within the last year:


Major capital project for extending TriMet light rail line complete so lottery bond funding much reduced.

FY2013 Rhode Island State Transit Funding: Overview


(FY 2013 for Rhode Island is July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013)

Total State Transit Funding $51,629,898

Description of state funding sources:


The largest portion of state funding comes from the Motor Fuel (gas) tax. A total of 9.75 cents per gallon is
allocated to the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) for operating expenses. An additional 1.0 cent per
gallon is allocated to the Department of Human Services (DHS) and transferred to RIPTA for elderly and disabled
transportation. Gas tax funding totaled $44.7 million in FY2013. Other transit funding comes from the state's General
Fund to purchase bus passes for those in DHS job placement and retraining programs ($1.6 million); Rhode Island
Capital Plan (RICAP) funds to assist with land and building costs ($138,101), while state bond funds are allocated
to match Federal transit capital dollars ($5.2 million).

Description of major changes in state funding within the last year:


Compared to FY2012, there were slight decreases across all categories of state expenditure in FY2013.
This decrease highlights the absence of Federal funds allocated to purchase buses and to match Federal
dollars allocated for commuter rail expansion in Rhode Island, along with a steady decrease in gas tax
receipts.

FY2013 Texas State Transit Funding: Overview


(FY 2013 for Texas is September 1, 2012 to August 31, 2013)

Total State Transit Funding $31,941,067

Description of state funding sources:


Texas uses funds from the State Highway Fund (Fund 006) that are not dedicated for highway
purposes to provide grants to qualifying rural and urban transportation providers. State funds are
appropriated for a two-year period by the Texas Legislature every other year (odd numbered years).
The Texas Transportation Commission was authorized by statute to establish a formula to allocate
these funds. The Texas Department of Transportation provides oversight for these grants, once
awarded by the commission.

Description of major changes in state funding within the last year:


This is the second year of the state fiscal biennium. In anticipation of the determination of urbanized
and nonurbanized boundaries and population estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau, TxDOT requested
and received additional state funds to help address negative impacts of those changes. This amounts
to $1.6M additional each fiscal year of the 2012-2013 biennium.

In Wisconsin, there is no dedicated revenue source(s) or pre-established
allocation of revenue source(s) supporting state transit funding programs.
The funding provided above should only include funding meant to support
transit services that are open to the general public. It can include funding for
transit services that are targeted to specific populations, such as the elderly,
but the services are also open to the general public.

Transit agencies in some states receive funding from other non-transit


specific state or federal programs, such as Medicaid, Aging or Workforce
Development programs. This additional funding may support client-based
transportation only but the funding might be a significant source of revenue
for local transit services.
Does your state receive this type of client-based transportation
funding? YES NO (X)
If asked in the future, could your state provide state-level data
on these funds? YES NO (NA)
Circle the correct response for each question. Thank you.
