30% Local Distribution Fund Projects
Each year, the Authority distributes 30% of its revenues to the member localities in which the taxes and fees are raised. So far, member localities have used their 30% revenues for projects like bus operation expenses, Capital Bikeshare and pedestrian improvements.
The Authority is responsible for developing and updating the long range regional transportation plan for Northern Virginia, currently TransAction. This long range transportation plan is used to evaluate and prioritize the funding of transportation projects in Northern Virginia.
