ActioNet, Inc. announced today its award of the New National Transit Database (NTD) contract for operation, maintenance, and development services for the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). NTD is a mission-critical system that collects financial, operational, and capital asset data from transit providers in urbanized areas nationwide.
About the National Transit Database (NTD)
The National Transit Database (NTD) is the primary source of statistics on the transit industry in the U.S. The NTD collects data each year from over 650 transit providers in urbanized areas across the Nation, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Each month, these transit providers report data on ridership, service operations, and safety and security to the NTD. Additionally, State, Territorial, and Tribal Departments of Transportation report data on behalf of over 1,400 transit providers in rural areas. Under 49 USC 5335, which establishes the National Transit Database, all recipients of FTA Formula Grants under 49 USC 5307 (Urbanized Area Formula Grants) and under 49 USC 5311 (Formula Grants for Other Than Urbanized Areas) must report to the NTD. A number of transit providers in urbanized areas also report voluntarily to the NTD in order to benefit their local urbanized area in the apportionment of Urbanized Area Formula Grants.
NTD data underpins the annual apportionments by FTA of about $6 billion in formula funding for urbanized areas. NTD is essential in meeting a statutory obligation to report to Congress every two years on the condition and performance of the Nation’s transit systems.
