Designation of Transportation Management Areas

AGENCIES: Federal Transit Administration (FTA), Federal Highway 
Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of designation.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Federal 
Highway Administration (FHWA) are announcing that all urbanized areas 
(UZAs) with populations greater than 200,000 as determined by the 2000 
Census, are hereby designated as Transportation Management Areas 
(TMAs). The FTA and the FHWA are taking this action in compliance with 
the agencies' authorizing statutes, 23 U.S.C. 134, and 49 U.S.C. 5305. 
This action supersedes the agencies' designations of TMAs made in the 
Federal Register on May 18, 1992, at 57 FR 21160.

DATES: This notice is effective July 8, 2002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Titles 23 and 49 of the United States Code 
(23 U.S.C. 134 (i), and 49 U.S.C. 5305, respectively) require the 
Secretary of Transportation to designate urbanized areas over 200,000 
population as Transportation Management Areas

(TMAs). A number of Census Bureau defined areas across the United 
States have recently exceeded 200,000 in population as determined by 
the 2000 Census. Accordingly, this notice hereby designates such areas 
as TMAs. Designated TMAs are subject to special planning and 
programming requirements. The FTA and the FHWA have developed a series 
of ``Questions and Answers'' related to applying 2000 Census data to 
Urbanized and Urban areas in the FTA and FHWA planning processes. More 
information can be found at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/planning/census/
faqa2cdt.htm or http://www.fta.dot.gov/library/planning/census/qa.html. 
These requirements apply to the metropolitan planning area that must be 
determined jointly under 23 U.S.C. 134(c), and 49 U.S.C 5303(d).
    Additional areas shall be designated as TMAs upon request of the 
Governor and the MPO or affected local officials. Notification of any 
additional TMAs will be issued through a Secretarial Memorandum to the 
appropriate State Governors and MPOs, not as a notice published in the 
Federal Register. The UZAs with populations over 200,000, which are 
hereby designated as TMAs, are listed below. Three areas were 
previously designated TMAs at Gubernatorial request; Santa Barbara, 
California; Southern New Jersey, New Jersey; and Petersburg, Virginia. 
Of these three areas, only Santa Barbara, California did not meet the 
statutory population threshold for formal designation. However, Santa 
Barbara continues to be designated as a TMA as a result of the previous 
request.
    There have been significant changes in the Census 2000 universe of 
urbanized areas from those defined, based on the 1990 census and 
criteria. These changes include new areas, areas formed by splits or 
mergers, name changes, and areas with significant boundary changes.
    For multi-state urbanized areas over 200,000 population, the 
urbanized area is listed under the State with the largest share of the 
population. However, the TMA designation applies to the entire multi-
state urbanized area. Montgomery, Alabama was previously designated a 
TMA, but fell below 200,000 in population and thus no longer meets the 
minimum population threshold to be classified as a TMA and is not 
included in the list of TMAs. Lorain-Elyria, Ohio was also previously 
designated as a TMA but is not included in the current list, since its 
Census designated population no longer meets the 200,000 threshold 
after a portion of the area has been absorbed by another, larger TMA 
(Cleveland).
    The Census Bureau defined the Census 2000 urbanized areas using the 
criteria published in the Federal Register on March 15, 2002 (67 FR 
11663). As a result of using these definitions, there were significant 
changes in the Census 2000 universe of urbanized areas from those 
defined, based on the 1990 census and criteria. A detailed description 
of the terminology and changes noted in the column entitled ``Area 
Comparison to 1990 Census TMAs'' is presented in the Census Bureau's 
notice of ``Qualifying Urban Areas for Census 2000'' in the Federal 
Register on May 1, 2002 (67 FR 21961).

    Authority: 23 U.S.C. 315; 23 U.S.C. 134(i), 49 U.S.C. 5305, 49 
CFR 1.48 and 1.51.
