USE ROAD FUNDS FOR TRANSIT? SOME STATES DO, SOME DON'T

Between the fiscal years of 1992 and 1999, the District of Columbia, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, and California transferred more than one-third of their available highway funds to transit programs, while six states--Delaware, Kansas, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming--transferred none. New York and California received more than 16% of all federal funds available for transfer, but accounted for nearly half of all funds actually transferred from highways to transit. Metropolitan areas with the largest, most well-established transit agencies took the most advantage of flexible federal transportation funding under the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991.
