Survey of State Funding for Public Transportation 2004

This report is the 24th compilation of information on state funding of public transportation. A review of state funding from 1990-2004 shows that, compared to 19990, the total amount of funds currently programmed for public transit has more than doubled. The most utilized sources of funding for transit in the states and the District of Columbia included general fund, gas tax, motor vehicle/rental car sales tax, bond proceeds, registration/title/license fees, and general sales tax. States provided $9.3 billion in funding for public transit in Fiscal Year 2004 (FY 2004). This compares with about $7 billion in funding provided by the Federal Transit Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation that same year. About 44% of the state funding for transit in FY 2004 was designated for operating assistance only, about 17% was for capital purposes only, and the remaining nearly 37% could be used for capital or operating purposes.
