2015:

  • Federal Funding to New York Transit Systems:
    • Ron Epstein of NYSDOT prepared a table showing the estimated federal funding under FAST to each NYS Urbanized Area based on current formulas. The funding is shown for each formula program: Section 5307/5340, Section 5337 State of Good Repair, and Section 5339 Bus Program. Also shown are state totals for Section 5311 and 5310. See the table.
    • A second table compares the total 5 year funding to each urbanized area from FAST to 5 years of current funding (at 2015 levels), and shows the amount and percentage increase in funding from FAST. As you may recall, NYPTA's capital needs report assumed flat federal funding at 2015 levels. See the table.
    • Federal transit funding to NYS urbanized areas grows at different rates based on the amount of funding each area obtains from the various federal programs. Transit systems that receive Section 5337 SGR funding see larger increases in overall funding, as this program grows more than other federal transit programs.
