OPERATING ASSISTANCE FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEMS: A SURVEY OF STATE-LEVEL PROGRAMS

A survey of several state-level programs of operating assistance for public transportation systems was undertaken early in 1978 by the New York State Department of Transportation as part of its annual evaluation of the impact and effectiveness of its statewide aid program. Only three states did not respond, but they were subsequently determined not to have such programs. This paper describes existing programs in terms of eligible operations, local sponsorship, relationship to Urban Mass Transportation Administration funding programs, ability to use funds for capital purposes, sources of program funds, and the scope of services assisted. Finally, it proposes a more in-depth review of the effectiveness of the programs designed to aid in policy development and implementation at both the state and the federal levels.
