Federal, State, and Local Government Transportation-Related Revenues and Expenditures, Fiscal Year (Chained 2009 $ millions)


Total government expenditures are the sum of state and local expenditures including federal grants and federal expenditures less grants.

To eliminate the effects of inflation over time, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics converted current dollars to chained 2009 dollars.

BTS used the Price Index for Government Consumption Expenditures and Gross Investment as the price deflator. Previous editions of this table used chained 2009 dollars, so this table is not comparable to previous editions.

Local government receipts and outlays for highway are not included in 2009.

Government transportation revenues consist of money collected by governments from transportation user charges and taxes to finance transportation programs. The following types of receipts are excluded: 1) revenues collected from users of the transportation system that are directed to the general fund and used for nontransportation purposes, 2) nontransportation general fund revenues that are used to finance transportation programs and 3) proceeds from borrowing.
