Transportation Expenditures by Mode and Level of Government From Own Funds, Fiscal Year

(Millions of chained 2012 dollars)

Dataset Excel: 
Notes: 

Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding. 

Federal expenditures from own funds include all amounts of money paid out by the federal government including not only direct spending but also grants to state and local governments.  State and local expenditures from own funds include outlays of the state and local governments from all sources of funds excluding federal grants. 

Federal expenditure on General support declined in 2017 and 2018 due to a drop in Transportation Security Administration funding of Transportation Security Support which decreased from $973.0 million in 2016 to $503.0 million in 2017 and $139.0 million in 2018.

Data deflated using separate price indexes for federal transportation (NIPA Table 3.15.4 Line 19) and state & local transportation (NIPA Table 3.15.4 Line 31).

All chained-dollar measures are calculated based on the Fisher Ideal quantity index formula.

Chained 2009 dollars estimates for earlier years can be found in the 2018 edition of NTS.

Rows may not total due to Fisher Ideal Chaining.

BTS is in the process of reviewing and revising 2017 railroad and transit expenditures to account for new budget line items. All effected tables will be updated shortly.
