Metro Transit funding

Metro Transit is an operating division of the Metropolitan Council. Like transit agencies in most metropolitan areas, Metro Transit relies heavily on state and federal money to finance its operations and capital programs. About 1/3 of Metro Transit's operating budget is covered by fares and advertising revenue, the remainder comes from regional, state, federal, county and other sources (see Metro Transit's annual Fact Book for additional detail).
