This report provides summary statistics on the finances and operations of the United States' public transit systems for the 1989 calendar year. These statistics were derived from the database developed through the Urban Mass Transportation Administration's Section 15 Reporting System. This report is intended to complement the National Urban Mass Transportation Statistics: Section 15 Annual Report issued by the Urban Mass Transportation Administration since 1980. That report contains aggregate transit statistics, but focuses principally on the finances and operations of individual transit systems. By contrast, the compendium provides a national, policy-oriented perspective, highlighting aggregate financial and operational characteristics. In this report, national transit industry financial operational characteristics are illustrated through the use of 1) graphics designed to emphasize key transit industry patterns, 2) policy relevant statistics and aggregations, and 3) trend information incorporating statistics from the previous Section 15 databases.
