* Light rail ridership is tabulated using Federal Transit Administration-approved automatic passenger counters (APCs) as its official methodology

** In 2012, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) assumed from DART responsibility for operations, maintenance and enforcement of the regional system of high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes as it transitioned to tolled managed lanes. DART remains a capital funding partner in the I-635 HOV/Managed Lanes currently under construction by TxDOT. DART is permitted to continue reporting HOV usage (i.e. ridership) and the revenue miles from DART's operation of buses on the HOV lanes within its service area to continue receiving the associated FTA formula funds that support DART's ongoing transit operations.
