operational costs of employee wages and benefits, transit vehicle fuel, and Insurance Pool
insurance coverage for revenue vehicles and property. Skagit Transit also receives an annual
apportionment of FTA Section 5307 and 5339 funding from the Puget Sound Regional Council
for services operated within the Seattle UZA boundaries. These funds are generally used to
support Skagit Transit operations and capital assets used in services provided by Skagit Transit
within the Seattle UZA service area.
Skagit Transit also receives discretionary funding from various FTA programs from time to time.
