NOTES: This table includes data from urban transit agencies that are required to report information to the federal government because they applied for or are direct beneficiaries of urbanized area formula grants (49 USC 5307). Transit agencies with nine or fewer vehicles that would otherwise need to report under this definition typically receive a waiver from detailed reporting and, thus, are not necessarily included in the source database. Data are assigned to the state of a transit agency's mailing address. Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding. Ridership data may not add to national total due to rounding.
