Highway organization funding dwarfs transit

From our friends at streetsblog.com:

The American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials, or AASHTO, is the road lobby's leading voice, reporting more than $53 million in annual revenue on its most recent publicly available Internal Revenue Service (IRS) filing.

The American Public Transportation Association (APTA), which represents local transit agencies as well as companies involved in transit networks, reported $21 million in annual revenue in its most recent IRS filing.

Highways have a better than 2-to1 funding advantage over transit even for their respective national organizations!
