NATIONAL TRENDS IN THE URBAN MASS TRANSPORTATION ADMINISTRATION'S STATE RURAL TRANSIT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS: THE BENCHMARK REPORT

In 1986, Congress authorized the creation of the Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP) under Section 18(h) of the SURFACE Transportation Act. The focus of this report is on the 50 state RTAP programs that have come into being since RTAP was created. The report provides a snapshot of the UMTA RTAP state programs as of the summer/fall of 1989 and is a benchmark for future analyses of the program. Its contents are based on information collected through a survey of the UMTA RTAP state programs. The report should assist states in information exchange on RTAP state activities and provide some initial information to UMTA and the Congress on the benefits and effectiveness of RTAP. Highlights of each of the 50 state programs are included.
