Funding27 l.jpg
FUNDING

Pre 1999 Funding Logic

Operations:

  • State Subsidy 40%

  • Large Cash Balance

  • Gas Tax

  • Fines and Fees

  • Motor Vehicle Excise Tax (MVET)

  • Customer Subsidy 60%

  • Fares and purchases

Capital:

  • State Subsidy 100%

  • Gas Tax

  • Bond Funds

  • Motor Vehicle Excise Tax (MVET)

  • Federal Funds


Funding29 l.jpg
FUNDING

Impact of I-695

Operations:

  • Cash Balance begins to be depleted

  • Motor Vehicle Excise Tax eliminated

  • Fare Box increases intended to move it to 80% recovery


Funding30 l.jpg
FUNDING

Impact of I-695

Capital:

  • Bond Funds pledged and not available for new projects

  • Motor Vehicle Excise Tax eliminated

  • Begin to use funding normally provided other highway programs


Funding31 l.jpg
FUNDING

Current Situation

Operations:

  • Expenditure Pressures exceeding funding availability

  • Fare increases has diminishing returns


Funding32 l.jpg
FUNDING

Current Situation

Capital:

  • Planned six and twenty year program unfunded

  • Project deferrals used to balance budget


Funding33 l.jpg
FUNDING

Financial Tensions

  • Fair equity

  • Route service versus route service

  • East side terminals versus west terminals

  • “Vehicle” mobility versus walk-on passengers
