Sources of Funding for Transit in Urban Areas in Texas

This report provides information on the sources of revenues to fund transit in urban areas in Texas—through federal, state, and local sources. All public transit systems are eligible for federal funds from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). FTA funds require match from state and/or local funds. There are two categories of transit systems in urban areas in Texas: (1) Urban transit districts: receive state funds for transit but do not have a local sales tax dedicated to transit as a source for local funds. Urban transit districts must find local funds for operating and capital from other sources. (2) Transit authorities and municipal transit departments: have access to a local sales tax dedicated to transit but do not receive state funds.
