Federal transit administration fta

Federal Transit Administration (FTA)

  • States “Transit providers shall prepare demographic and service profile maps and charts after each decennial census and prior to proposed service reductions or eliminations.”

  • Title VI Program Plan: must be submitted to FTA every three years and must be approved by board of directors or appropriate governing entity prior to submission to FTA.

  • Transit providers that have implemented or will implement a New Start, Small Start, or other new fixed guideway capital project shall conduct a service and fare equity analysis.

  • Require maps displaying transit base data, demographic profile data and transit facilities

    • Equitable distribution of stop shelters


Census data

Census Data

  • Census.gov

    • American FactFinder

      • factfinder2.census.gov

  • Low Income Households Density

    • FTA “any group of households whose

      income is <=150% of the household size

      poverty guidelines for the average household

      size of that census tract”

    • Calculations

      • AVERAGE_HH_SIZE: TOTAL_POP / HOUSEHOLDS

      • HH_LESS_25:  [HH_LESS_10] + [HH_10_15] + [HH_15_25]

      • HH_LESS_35:  [HH_LESS_25] + [HH_25_35]

      • HH_LESS_50:  [HH_LESS_35] + [HH_35_50]

      • HH_LESS_75:  [HH_LESS_50] + [HH_50_75]

      • LOW_INC_HH: 

        • IF [AVERAGE_HH_SIZE] <= 2 THEN [HH_LESS_25]

        • IF [AVERAGE_HH_SIZE] > 2 AND <= 4 THEN [HH_LESS_35]

        • IF [AVERAGE_HH_SIZE] > 4 AND <= 6 THEN [HH_LESS_50]

        • IF [AVERAGE_HH_SIZE] > 6 THEN [HH_LESS_75]

      • LOW_INC_HH_PCT:  [LOW_INC_HH] / [HOUSEHOLDS]

  • Minority Population Density

    • Total Population - White Population = Minority Population

    • Minority Population / Total Population = Minority Population Density
