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 2010 
Census are hereby designated as Transportation Management Areas (TMAs). 
The FTA and FHWA are taking this action in compliance with the 
agencies' authorizing statutes, 23 U.S.C. 134, and 49 U.S.C. 5303. This 
action supersedes the agencies' designations of TMAs made in the 
Federal Register on July 8, 2002, at 67 FR 45173.

DATES: Effective Date: July 18, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For FTA related questions, Charles 
Goodman, Office of Systems Planning (TPE-10), (202) 366-1944, email: 
Charles.Goodman@dot.gov, or Dana Nifosi, Office of Chief Counsel (TCC), 
(202) 366-4011, email: Dana.nifosi@dot.gov, Federal Transit 
Administration, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., Washington, DC 20590. Office

    For FHWA related questions, James Cheatham, Office of Planning 
(HEPP), (202) 366-0106, email: James.Cheatham@dot.gov, or Janet Myers, 
Office of Chief Counsel (HCC), (202) 366-2019, email: 
janet.myers@dot.gov, Federal Highway Administration, 1200 New Jersey

p.m., et., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Titles 23 and 49 of the United States Code 
(23 U.S.C. 134(k)(1)(A) and 49 U.S.C. 5303(k)(1)(A)) require the 
Secretary of Transportation to designate urbanized areas over 200,000 
population as TMAs. A number of Census Bureau defined urbanized areas 
across the United States have recently exceeded 200,000 in population 
as determined by the 2010 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 
2010 Census data to Urbanized and Urban areas in the joint FTA and FHWA 
planning processes. More information can be found at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/planning/census_issues/ and http://www.fta.dot.gov/grants/12853_12408.html.
    These requirements apply to the metropolitan planning areas that 
must be determined jointly by the metropolitan planning organization 
(MPO) and Governor, in accordance with 23 U.S.C. 134(d) and 49 U.S.C. 
5303(d). Additional urbanized areas may be designated as TMAs by the 
Secretary of Transportation 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. The Santa Barbara, California urbanized area 
did not meet the statutory population threshold for TMA designation, 
but was previously designated as a TMA at the request of the MPO and 
Governor. The Santa Barbara urbanized area continues to be designated 
as a TMA as a result of the previous request.
    There have been significant changes in the urbanized areas defined 
by the 2010 Census from those defined by the 2000 Census. These changes 
include new areas, based primarily on population growth, name changes, 
and areas with significant boundary changes. For multistate 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 multistate urbanized area.
    The Census Bureau defined the Census 2010 urbanized areas using the 
criteria published in the Federal Register on August 24, 2011 (76 FR 
53030). As a result of using these definitions, there were significant 
changes in the Census 2010 urbanized areas from those defined based on 
the 2000 census and criteria. A detailed discussion of the differences 
in the Census Bureau criteria from 2000 to 2010 can be found at the 
Census Bureau's Web site. http://www.census.gov/geo/www/ua/2000_2010uadif.pdf.

    Authority:  23 U.S.C. 315; 23 U.S.C. 134(k)(1)(A), 49 U.S.C. 
5303(k)(1)(A), 49 CFR 1.48 and 1.51.
