Definition

Please note:

How Dues Are Calculated

Dues are based on annual Operating Expenses, including paratransit, for your most recent completed year. For systems with operating expenses under $1,000,000, choosing "Basic Option" reduces dues by approximately $200 (see below).

Dues for U.S. and Canadian transit systems are listed in separate columns on the chart below.

Definition of Operating Expenses

Operating expenses, including paratransit, include all costs and expenses paid or accrued arising in connection with or from the operation, maintenance, and/or management or supervision of transit operations, excluding any provision of payment for depreciation or replacement reserves or funds. Excluded are interest and principal payments or accruals on any form of debt assumed or incurred in the acquisition, construction, extension, improvement, modification or replacement of any transit system equipment or appurtenances thereto. Federal, state, or local income taxes paid or accrued on any and all transit operations also should be excluded.

Basic Membership Option 

"Basic Option" is made available to U.S. and Canadian transit systems with Operating Expenses of $1,000,000 or below. Choosing this option reduces dues by approximately $200. Selecting the "Basic Option" prohibits staff of member organizations from serving as elected officers and directors of APTA.
