Notes: Government transportation revenue consists of money collected by governments from transportation user charges and taxes to finance transportation programs. The revenue of a mode of transportation includes all transportation revenues designated to that mode regardless the sources or instruments from which the revenues are collected. Tolls from highways, bridges, and tunnels etc. but designated for transit use are accounted as transit revenue.

The revisions for transportation revenues include: 1) state and local air transportation revenues for 1995 and 2000, 2) pipeline revenues for 2000, and 3) the revenues for 2007.
