About the Data

FTA’s Statistical Summaries provide detailed analyzed data about grant funds awarded and agency expenditures for all of FTA’s major financial aid programs, such as urban and rural formula grants, Capital Investment Grants, Bus and Bus Facilities Grants and Metropolitan and Statewide Planning. The data used in the Statistical Summaries are compiled from the capital, operating, and planning assistance grants to transit authorities, states, planning agencies, and other units of local government and eligible recipients.

Fiscal Year 2017 Statistical Summaries mark the first year of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, which was signed into law in December 2015. The act, which supports transit funding through fiscal year 2020, reauthorizes FTA programs and includes changes to improve mobility, streamline capital project construction and acquisition, and increase the safety of public transportation systems across the country. Programs authorized under prior authorizations will not be represented in future statistical summaries once the funding has been fully expended.
