As the WCCO piece explains, their average operating subsidy comes in at $ per ride. And now is a good time to start thinking a little more critically about all of this. The specific operating subsidy is $, but there are many positive externalities to transit use, . The federal government has granted funds to urban areas to subsidize mass transit operating expenses. These funds are allocated on the basis of a congressionally determined formula. GAO has developed criteria by which various factors included in such a formula can be evaluated. Although no single factor satisfies all criteria, some are clearly unsatisfactory, and GAO has indicated the type of.

Summary: The citations in this bibliography deal with some of the most critical problems confronting transit operators and government bodies in a period of rising operating costs and increasing problems in assuring adequate subsidies. Nearly all are from U.S. sources . Since , transit operating subsidies (adjusted for inflation to today’s dollars) total close to $ billion. We don’t have accurate capital cost data from before , but since then we’ve spent close to $ billion on capital programs (which in the transit industry include maintenance), most of it on rail transit.

Last week Governor Christie announced an percent subsidy reduction, about $33 million, to NJ TRANSIT’s FY10 state operating subsidy as part of a number of steps the Governor is taking to close the state’s current budget shortfall. “This reduction is painful but we understand the challenge the state is facing,” Weinstein said. Transit operating subsidies have recently come under fire on the grounds that they've been largely responsible for the declines in the U.S. transit industry's productivity over the past decade. Surprisingly, until recently, there has been little statistical analysis to demonstrate the effects of subsidies on productivity, cost trends and ridership.

The FTA supports transit development through such programs as the New Starts Program, which provides funding for new rapid transit projects and the rehabilitation of existing lines, the Job Access and Reverse Commutes (JARC) program, which provides funding to assist the poor in accessing jobs in underserved communities, and operating subsidies.

To be fair, we should end subsidies to highways as well, though those subsidies are much smaller -- cents per passenger mile vs. nearly 90 cents for transit. Subsidies make transportation providers, whether public or private, more responsive to politicians than to transportation.

Operating subsidies to urban transit have been growing rapidly in recent years. In the near future they will probably pay one-third or more of the industry's oper ating expenses. Proponents argue that operating subsidies are desirable because (a) they alleviate problems with existing automobile and land use patterns (such as congestion, air.

Congress, however, resisted the elimination of federal transit operating subsidies. These subsidies continued but at significantly lower levels. The decreases in federal operating subsidies, however, were more than offset by increases in state and local transit operating subsidies, rising continuously from $ billion in to $ billion in (Transit Fact Book, various years).Cited by: 4.

Adjusted for inflation, the same data show that subsidies to transit by all levels of government have totaled well over $ trillion sincebut these subsidies haven’t benefitted either.

modeling economic inefficiency caused by public transit subsidies This book provides a balanced view of the way inefficiency from public transit subsidies should be analyzed.

Following an overview in Chapter 1, Chapter 2 provides a detailed discussion of recent trends in transit costs, revenue, output, and subsidies in transit by: The Mass Transit Operating Assistance fund was created by Section a of State Finance Law.

The downstate account provides funding to transit systems in the county New York metropolitan transportation commuter district and consists of revenues from the following sources: a portion of the Petroleum Business Tax (PBT); the MTA Corporate Tax. We subsidize transit because if we didn’t, poorer residents wouldn’t be able to travel to work or elsewhere.

Without government subsidies a typical transit fare would have to be about $5 or so, which many poorer people could not afford.
