About GTA
Georgia Transit Association (GTA) History
The Georgia Transit Association (GTA) is a 501c(6) organization that was established in
the 1990’s to help advance transit issues, share knowledge with peer systems, and
coordinate training activities for rural and urban transit systems. The GTA has
increased those activities over the years, and expanded its membership to include
businesses, governments, and individuals who are interested in improving transit in
Georgia.
GTA Mission
The GTA represents the legislative interests of rural and urban public transit entities;
provides a forum for the exchange of information, ideas and experiences; works
toward securing adequate and stable funds for public transit; and promotes a positive
image for transit throughout Georgia.

6. Regional solutions vs statewide solutions
Georgia 2030: Senior Livability
• Georgia’s aging population will rise sharply
through 2030
• Human services transit, including the
elderly, will need a 31% funding increase to
keep up with population growth (Aging,
2012).
• Public transit systems will have to increase
system flexibility to accommodate older
riders
Figure 2. Aging Population Projections (Aging, 2012)
Georgia 2030: Millennial Livability
• Millennials prefer to have multiple
transportation choices
• Transportation options influence where
Millennials live and work
• Millennials are more willing to use transit,
but car sharing services are also popular
• Millennials utilize technology to find the
best transportation alternative
Figure 3. Millennial Mobility (APTA, 2013)
Funding Discussions
Public Transit Network
1. Economic and workforce development issues are
driving legislative policy discussion about the public
transit network
2. More legislators are open to the idea of exploring a
permanent source of funding for Georgia’s public
transit systems
3. Transit funding and transit governance issues are tied
together
Human Services Transit (HST)
1. HST funding is not likely to change without a
significant and sustained advocacy effort

• Georgia must contribute a significant level of funding, primarily in operations, to
increase transit competitiveness
• Transit cannot exist without local government funding and support
• Large urban areas (200,000+ population) must fund 100% of operational costs
Figure 5. Funding Percentages (AASHTO, 2016)
Human Services Transit Funding
• HST programs require $44.4 million dollars in additional funds to maintain service
levels

Transit Governance
State Level Transit Governance
The Georgia Transit Association (GTA) supports a state
transit governance model that enhances access to public
and human services transit, preserves local control, and
coordinates existing transit programs to eliminate the
duplication of services.
Regional Level Transit Governance
The Georgia Transit Association (GTA) supports a
voluntary regional transit governance model that
enhances access to public and human services transit,
preserves local control, and coordinates existing transit
programs to eliminate the duplication of services.
One Call That’s All
Figure 7: Transit Coordination Chart (FTA, 2016)
Action Steps
• Local systems must champion transit
funding in county transportation
sales tax votes (2017)
• Local systems must be able to
discuss transit economic
development impact with area
elected officials
• Local transit champions must be
developed to help with advocacy
efforts
• Organize stakeholders
• Employers
• Millennials
• Senior advocates
• Technology sector
