Information about FTA's programs and the transit agencies that are served by the FTA are within these pages.
The National Transit Database (NTD) was established by Congress to be the Nation’s primary source for information and statistics on the transit systems of the United States. Recipients or beneficiaries of grants from the FTA under the Urbanized Area Formula Program (5307) or Other than Urbanized Area (Rural) Formula Program (5311) are required by statute to submit data to the NTD.
The Statistical Summaries provide either written or numerical descriptions about how FTA funds were apportioned and obligated by program, by state, or by other means.
The summary tables and pie charts below are listed in the menu to the right. This is exclusively non-ARRA data. Please refer to the ARRA portal for ARRA grant information.
The pie charts and tables below reflect the total dollar amounts of grants awarded and the percentage awarded by grant program.
