SVTA’s primary source of funding comes from governmental assistance programs. The Florida Transportation Disadvantaged program fund allows riders who qualify to receive transportation at a minimal cost. Other funding sources include grants from both Federal and State Department of Transportation transit programs. A small portion of revenue comes from fare box collections. Lastly, in accordance with the Inter-local Agreement that forms the SVTA, each county provides a modest revenue package in an amount as dictated on the agreement that was signed back in 1974.
