Tribal Transit Demographic Need Indicators

In 2005, Congress enacted the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act - A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). This highway funding legislation created a new Section 5311c program, which provided funding for Indian tribes and the provision of public transit programs serving small urban and rural (other than urbanized) areas with populations of under 50,000. This study provides transit-related demographic information concerning the 332 federally recognized Indian tribes in the lower 48 states. Quantifying related needs is an essential component of designing and carrying out public policy related to the new 5311c program.
