What are the primary funding sources used to support Roseville Transit?
Transportation Development Act (TDA)
The Transportation Development Act (TDA) provides a major source of funding for public transportation, i.e. Roseville Transit. One source of TDA funds is the Local Transportation Fund (LTF), which came into existence in 1972. The LTF revenues typically account for more than 80% of all revenues for Roseville Transit. The second source of TDA revenues is the State Transit Assistance Fund (STA), which came into existence in 1980. STA funds account for approximately 2% of all revenues for Roseville Transit.

Both LTF and STA funds are for the development and support of public transportation needs that exist in California, and more specifically, in Roseville. LTF revenues are derived from a 1/4 cent of the 7.25 percent retail sales tax collected statewide. The 1/4 cent sales tax is returned by the State Franchise Tax Board to Placer County, who holds the funds until they are distributed annually to each city and the county. The allocation of the 1/4 cent sales tax to each community is based upon population.

Farebox Revenues
Farebox revenues are collected for each trip taken on Roseville Transit. Current Roseville Transit fares are listed in the Services Guide. Farebox revenues account for approximately 8% of all revenues for Roseville Transit.

Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Urbanized Formula Funds
This program (49 U.S.C. 5307) makes Federal resources available to urbanized areas and to Governors for transit capital and operating assistance in urbanized areas and for transportation related planning. Presently, these funds annually account for approximately 6% of all revenues to Roseville Transit. An urbanized area is an incorporated area with a population of 50,000 or more that is designated as such by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census. Roseville is part of the Sacramento urbanized area.

The City of Roseville can use the 5307 program funds for planning, engineering design and evaluation of transit projects and other technical transportation-related studies; capital investments in bus and bus-related activities such as replacement of buses, overhaul of buses, rebuilding of buses, crime prevention and security equipment and construction of maintenance and passenger facilities; and capital investments in new and existing fixed guideway systems including rolling stock, overhaul and rebuilding of vehicles, track, signals, communications, and computer hardware and software. Presently, Roseville Transit uses its funds from the 5307 program for capital purchases, primarily buses.
