Start Preamble


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


Supplementary notice of designation.


The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are modifying their announcement designating Transportation Management Areas (TMAs) issued on July 8, 2002. This action is necessary because in August 2002 the Census Bureau published a list of corrections to their population figures that we used to designate the TMAs. This notice is effective immediately and supersedes the other notice issued on July 8, 2002.


October 4, 2002.

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).

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, 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).

On July 8, 2002, the Secretary of Transportation through the FTA and the FHWA, in compliance with the agencies' authorizing statutes, 23 U.S.C. 134 and 49 U.S.C. 5305, published the list of TMAs in the Federal Register (67 FR 45173).

On August 23, 2002, the Census Bureau published a corrected list of urbanized areas and urban clusters in the Federal Register (67 FR 54630). This notice also modified the area of and population of a few urbanized areas and urban clusters by adding small amounts of territory to selected urbanized areas and urban clusters.

As a result of these Census published changes, it became necessary for the FHWA and FTA to amend the list of urbanized areas designated as TMAs. The three changes to the list of TMAs are the merging of San Rafael—Novato, California TMA with the San Francisco—Oakland, California TMA into a larger San Francisco—Oakland, California TMA; the modification of population figures in the Denver “ Aurora, Colorado TMA; and the modification of population figures for the Fort Collins, Colorado TMA. Therefore, this action modifies the list of urbanized areas that are designated as TMAs. This action supersedes the previous list of urbanized areas designated as TMAs issued on July 8, 2002, at 67 FR 45173. This modification includes the Census originated corrections and provides an inclusive list of designated TMAs.
