Public Transportation in New York State:
The New York State Department of Transportation Public Transportation Bureau is dedicated to providing the riding public and municipalities, public transit operators, and other providers of shared ride services with information on a variety of services and funding opportunities.
The New York State Department of Transportation Public Transportation Bureau maintains a Directory of New York State Public Transit Operators. You can access the Directory on the Transit Operators page.
The Federal Transportation Administration provides financial and technical assistance to local public transit systems, including buses, subways, light rail, commuter rail, trolleys and ferries. FTA also oversees safety measures and helps develop next-generation technology research.
MPOs play a role in transit planning, sometimes taking the lead, and in other cases providing assistance to their transit operators. The larger metropolitan areas have regional transit authorities, while transit systems in smaller MPO regions are operated by counties or other local governments.
