Since 1973, few communities have used Highway Trust Fund monies
made available by Congress for mass transit under the Urban System
Program. Only 13 urban areas in 8 states used the program for mass
transit projects such as buying buses and rail passenger cars. Most
communities continued using Urban System funds for local roads
because Urban Mass Transportation Administration grants were
available for mass transit projects and because highways needed
work. Other reasons Urban System funds were not used for mass
transit included the fact that less matching shares were required
for federal mass transit than for highway programs; federal
regulations for implementing mass transit projects were not issued;
and some smaller communities experienced delays or confusion in
obtaining project approval.
