This volume consists of individual profiles for the Top 50 reporting agencies filing an NTD Annual Report for 2013. The Top 50 agencies were determined from unlinked passenger trips. Profiles contain general, financial, and modal data, as well as performance and trend indicators.
For the 2013 report year, 849 transit agencies submitted reports:
- 536 agencies submitted full reports
