NOTE: 2005 numbers differ from those in the June 2005 report because the method used for determining coverage was revised in this report to more accurately compute the coverage area and applied to the 2005 data.
(a) Facilities may provide intercity bus coverage to more than one State but facilities counted only in State in which located. There are eight intercity bus facilities located in Washington DC that are not shown in the total number of facilities providing coverage but provide intercity bus access to rural residents in one or more neighboring States.
